    Tucson Meet YourselfOn Monday, Aug. 20, the Pima County Board of Supervisors approved, in a 4-1 vote, $358,250 in funding for the Outside Agency Program, which provides financial support to non-profit community agencies that collaborate with the County to provide public services to constituents.  

    “Pima County support of the outside agency program is vital to the expansion of programs and exhibits celebrating the unique cultural, heritage, art and diversity of our region,” Attractions and Tourism Director Diane Frisch said.  “Both visitors and Pima County residents benefit from these projects.”

    Pima County Attractions and Tourism manages the Outside Agency Program to ensure the services provided compliment and expand those directly offered by the County. Funding levels will remain the same as in Fiscal Year 2017-2018. 

    Recipients of the outside agency grants include the Ajo District Chamber of Commerce, the Children’s Museum of Tucson and Oro Valley, Tucson Meet Yourself, the Tucson Pima Arts Council, DM 50, Perimeter Bicycling, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and the Sonoran Desert Conference Center. The recipients will split the approved amount of $358,250.
