MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, Gov. Tony Evers traveled across Wisconsin to announce $15 million in grants to local tourism organizations as the Badger State’s tourism and entertainment industries continue to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thanks to Gov. Evers, 120 destination marketing organizations from every corner of the state are receiving grants that will help them attract more visitors to explore all that Wisconsin has to offer.
