Alexandria Marketing Fund Announces Guidelines
First Application Deadline March 17

The Alexandria Marketing Fund is a program administered by the Alexandria Marketing Committee. The program was reinvigorated in October 2007 by the Alexandria City Council with a goal of fostering public-private partnerships that promote the City as a destination for visiting, shopping, dining and doing business. City Council appropriates monies for the fund on an annual basis and the Marketing Committee reviews and approves applications for funding. The first application deadline is March 17. Application guidelines are now available online.

The Fund is designed to foster projects that enhance the long-range marketing priorities of the City; increase awareness, while expanding the quality of Alexandria’s diverse retail, dining, hospitality, cultural attractions and other businesses; promote Alexandria to specific target audiences, including residents and visitors; and generate additional business sales and tax revenues in Alexandria.
