Washington County Pennsylvania, which is home to some of the country’s finest historical and cultural attractions, continues to lead the southwestern Pennsylvania region in both economic and tourism growth.  To support this growth and leverage tourism’s impact on economic development, the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency (WCTPA) recently announced $58,850 in new tourism investments, bringing the agency’s 2022 grant total to $249,850.

The grants will be awarded to public and private organizations for marketing projects in the 2022 tourism season.  Historical and entertainment organizations such as Aquatorium Innovations, Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village, Monongahela Main Street Program, National Duncan Glass Society, Washington County Historical Society and others will be receiving grants to promote their events. 

Jeff Kotula, President of the WCTPA further relayed that Washington County is a leader in business and leisure travel in the Greater Pittsburgh Region and the investments by the agency will continue that standing.  “Washington County ranks second—behind Allegheny County—in our area for tourism and we are making these funds available to strengthen that position as well as invest in long-term tourism development,” Kotula stated.
