Columbus, OH — The 2019 Matching Funds Grant Program applications are now available online on the fairs section of the USTA website.
The program will award up to $1,000 to each individual county fair, horsemen’s association and colt circuit selected to support a marketing program that promotes harness racing at the county fair level. Applicants must provide the same amount of funding as they are requesting from the USTA (ie. a $700 marketing plan with a $350 request from the USTA).
Along with the PDF application, guidelines, examples of winning proposals and other idea starters are available on the Matching Funds Grant page of the fairs section of the USTA website.
Mailed in applications must be postmarked by Wednesday (May 1). When applications are submitted, an email confirmation will be sent verifying receipt.
