ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism division announced Wednesday that it has awarded more than $85,275 in product development agreements to 13 new and expanding tourism projects across the state.
One of those is Gateway Heritage Rehabilitation and Renewal, a joint project of the Liberty County Development Authority and Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The individual project amounts were not listed.
In an effort to further tourism product development within the state, Georgia Tourism offers these grants to communities that participated in the department’s Tourism Product Development Resource Team program as a way to build products outlined in the resource team’s reports. The Tourism Product Development Resource Team program works to evaluate a community’s potential for tourism growth and development through innovative and unique experiences based on a community’s local culture and heritage.
