Northern Maine Development Commission Hopes for Tourism Grant

Maine, (WAGM) The Northern Maine Development Commission is hoping they'll receive a major grant through the Maine Office of Tourism.

$150,000 is up for grabs.

Tourism numbers are up on the rise in Aroostook County.

"That will be aimed at marketing both printed media, as well as online media and we're looking now at this whole world of videography, we want to expand our outreach not only using the digital media in the form of writing and photos but also we want to get into the video world." Says NMDC Planning & Development Director, Alain Oullette.

The commission expects to hear by next week if they received the grant.
