We understand that Covid-19 continues to pose a threat to travel, events, and much of our fun activities. However, there are some pretty savvy and clever people out there that have found a way to host fun things to do outside, digitally, and more. If your idea for a project or event is still moving forward, we want to help your event be successful and safe. We encourage you to read the terms of the program relating to postponements and cancellations caused by Covid-19.
