TRIPP Grant Award Boosts Main Street Efforts to Position Brunswick as Outdoor Recreation Destination

June 21, 2021

Brunswick Main Street (BMS) is thrilled to announce it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $7,000.00 from the Tourism Reinvestment in Promotion and Product (TRIPP) Program administered by the Tourism Council of Frederick County. Through this competitive program, a portion of the hotel tax revenue received by the Tourism Council is allocated to provide tourism product development grants for Frederick County non-profit organizations.

Early in June, BMS used its own funds to hire a production crew from local network WDVM to create a professional video. This video highlights Brunswick’s outdoor recreation amenities, including cycling on the Towpath and the River’s Edge trail network, kayaking, fishing, and our beautiful campground, as well as the downtown businesses ready to welcome visitors. The TRIPP grant allows BMS to distribute this video to a wider audience, taking advantage of internet and digital TV advertising to appeal to day-trippers and overnighters in a targeted radius.

“BMS has zeroed in on a few key areas when it comes to our economic strengths,” explains Carmen Hilton, BMS Manager. “I am ecstatic to see our efforts in the area of outdoor recreation beginning to yield results!”

Look for the video to debut on the BMS website in July!
