Leisure Event Assistance Grants


The Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Marketing team manages an Event Assistance program for leisure-focused events in the community. From small community events to full-scale concert series, the Event Assistance program is meant to help start a new event or to enhance a recurring event.

Grant Criteria

All requests must meet the following criteria:

  • Groups applying must be legally incorporated or non-profit organizations.  No individual may be awarded grant.
  • Events must be open to the public but can require an entry fee or registration to attend.
  • The FM CVB reserves the right to approve or reject requests and to ask for further clarification of the event.
  • The FM CVB will make all decisions regarding funds.  Applicants are not guaranteed funding.  The board may decide to award a partial amount of the funds requested if any at all.
  • Grant requests must be made in writing and must be sent to the offices of the FM CVB.

Upon Approval of Grant

Recipients of awards consent to the following:

Recognition commensurate with the award amount, i.e., sponsorship benefits or signage, is required.  It is important the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo community is aware of the FM CVB’s contribution to bettering its events.

Failure of the award recipient to comply with the items specified in item 1 of this section may result in the forfeiture of remaining payments and/or reimbursement of previous payments back to the FM CVB.
