Hart County Tourism receives funding from state of Kentucky

MUNFORDVILLE, Ky. – Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman was in Munfordville on Friday to award funding to some Hart County organizations.

$225,000 will be used to resurface two roads, and three nonprofits also received donations from the state.

Over $275,000 will go into Hart County Tourism, giving the Cave Country Trails, SOKY Film Commission and Munfordville Tourism money for new projects.

Horse Cave-Hart County Tourism is going to use the money to build a new website, which has been in the works for years. They say they are honored to receive this donation.

“We’re able to do that so that we can market our tourism businesses in Hart County, bring more people in that spend more money to support more jobs. We just believe we are so blessed to have so many natural assets, to have so many attractions and businesses and people who work hard to market the county,” Sandra Wilson, executive director of Horse Cave/Hart County Tourism, says.

This funding comes from the Kentucky Department of Tourism, which gives nearly $75,000,000 per year to tourism organizations in the commonwealth.
