CACVB Dollar Per Room ProgramIn 2006, the South Carolina General Assembly approved a measure that would allow for Convention and Visitors Bureaus to participate in a new grant program. The program calls for destinations within South Carolina to raise a minimum of $500,000 of private sector funds that would then be matched by the state $.50 on the $1.00.
