The Teton Regional Economic Coalition and Chamber of Commerce are beefing up programming in support of local businesses and the community.

In addition to virtually reviving our monthly mixers and business education sessions in March, we’ve re-opened the Teton Geo Center with a new photography and glass exhibit, “Find Your Light.”

Event Funding:

TREC manages the Idaho Travel and Tourism Grant, which brings more than $140,000 into the valley to support local and regional events. The grant helps fund everything from the Dutch Oven Cook-off in Tetonia to Music on Main in Victor, ensuring that our valley remains vibrant, active, and appealing to visitors and locals alike. If you are interested in promoting Teton Valley and would like to apply for grant dollars, applications are due on March 5, 2121.

The application can be accessed at our website: discovertetonvalley.com/itc-grant-administration Direct questions to administrator, Kristie Eggebroten: kristie@trec-biz.org or 307-699-5026

Online Learning Scholarships:

TREC and Grand Teton Floor and Window Coverings are supporting our local workforce by providing subsidized professional development training opportunities, outlined on the TREC section of our website: discovertetonvalley.com

For accepted applicants, TREC will pay 50 percent of the cost of one of the online courses listed. Upon successful completion of that course, TREC will reimburse the remaining half.
