TOUR SEKY to host application workshop

By Maggie Moore

SOMERSET, KY - TOUR Southern and Eastern Kentucky (TOUR SEKY) will host a workshop in Somerset to help volunteers prepare their applications for funding opportunities through TOUR's C.I.T.Y. (Community Initiatives in Tourism for you) and Let's Paint the Town programs. These applications are only available to community representatives who attended TOUR's Fall Tourism Forum in November, 2009.

The workshop will be held January 20, 2010 at 11amET/10amCT at The Center for Rural Development, 2292 S Highway 27, Somerset, KY.

The C.I.T.Y. program is intended to assist southern and eastern Kentucky downtowns in attracting people to live, work, shop and play. The program has secured more than $600,000 for revitalization efforts in the region's downtowns. C.I.T.Y eligible projects include downtown/streetscape master plans, facade improvements and landscape projects, among others.

"Let's Paint the Town" is a community based program to clean up, paint and revitalize communities in southern and eastern Kentucky. Annually, projects will be eligible for the program with funding of as much as $2,000 each. Some of the eligible projects under the program include new windows, signage, awnings planters and murals. These opportunities are available through the efforts of Congressman Hal Rogers.

During the workshop, TOUR will show examples of funded applications and explain what the selection committee is looking for when they review applications.
