Moffat County Tourism Association (MCTA) and Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership (CMEDP) are working with the Colorado Tourism Office to bring the Colorado Rural Academy for Tourism (CRAFT) Studio 101 program to Moffat County.

CRAFT Studio 101 is a 12-week, comprehensive training program provided to select rural communities that are in the beginning stages of building tourism into a viable and sustainable economic strategy.

The CRAFT technical assistance opportunity will bring six full-day training workshops to Craig, as well as provide an opportunity to apply for $10,000 to help with the implementation of strategies developed during the workshops.

?I am truly excited the Colorado Rural Academy for Tourism program has been awarded to Craig and Moffat County, the timing is perfect for our community,? MCTA Director Tom Kleinschnitz said. ?This program promises to connect all of us in the very important and emerging tourism business sector. These efforts will help create a visitor ready atmosphere that will ultimately benefit the entire county.?
