This project will help small communities across Minnesota discover opportunities to develop community assets for sustainable tourism. Expanding regional assets can attract more visitors or keep them longer in your region.

The Minnesota Sustainable Tourism Assessment for Small Communities project combines the Tourism Center's proven tourism assessment tools with community visits. The project is sponsored by the University's Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships and Tourism Center. Applications are due by noon on May 15.
