RSAD Grant Application

Events

The State of Iowa through the Iowa Economic Development Authority every year opens the application process for CVB’s across the state of Iowa to apply for The Regional Sports Authority District (RSAD) grant. This grant is used by CVB’s to actively promote non-professional sporting events in Iowa. The Iowa Economic Development Authority annually selects 10 CVB’s to receive $50,000. Our district has the opportunity to submit a grant application in an effort to support local Johnson County events for the next fiscal year (e.g. July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023). Local non-professional sports event owners can submit information for a chance to be included in this year’s application that Think Iowa City will submit on behalf of the community.

The submission form is available further down on this page until June 1st with award letters sent out the week of August 22nd.  If you have would like to speak to our team, please call (319) 337-6592 and speak with Kylee Walker ([email protected]) or Luke Eustice ([email protected]).

End of Event Reporting Acknowledgement

The end of event report is critical to the RSAD Grant process. Without this information, Think Iowa City and the IEDA cannot effectively review the impact this grant program is having on Iowa communities. Failure on the part of Think Iowa City to provide this information to the State could result in the failure to award future grants. For this reason, all end of event reports and receipts must be provided to Think Iowa City within three (3) weeks of the conclusion of your event. RSAD funding will be provided after we have received all required documents. If those documents have not been received by Think Iowa City three (3) weeks following the conclusion of the event, RSAD funding may not be provided to you.
