    Cody and his team at Economic Development Winnipeg recently unveiled a new video campaign that explains economic development to their community stakeholders in very simple and easy-to-understand terms. The campaign includes a microsite with Winnipeg trivia and factoids that engages residents and helps them understand why the work of the destination organization is so critical.

    Erin Randall, Sports Business Manager, Visit OKC
    In 1993, Oklahoma City voters levied a sales tax on themselves to fund downtown development and improve the national image of the city. The new tax enabled the city to fund development projects debt-free and was recognized by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Since then, the MAPS program has been re-upped by voters three additional times and this year enabled the opening of a brand-new convention center in the heart of downtown. Learn how Visit OKC works with stakeholders across the region to support these critical economic development initiatives.

    The U.S. Congress last week passed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, legislation built on President Joe Biden’s plan to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill is far reaching in both its scope and the ways that destination organizations can directly and indirectly benefit from several provisions of the legislation including:
    An extension of the Employee Retention Credit to Q3 and Q4 2021. This extension could mean an additional credit of up to $14k per employee
    Funding of $350B for state & local governments
    Funding of $3B for EDA Grants (double the amount that was in the CARES Act) with $750m dedicated to communities that have suffered losses in travel, tourism or outdoor recreation
