RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Forty-two local tourism initiatives in Virginia will receive state matching grants totaling more than $750,000.

Grant recipients must provide a minimum two-to-one match.

McDonnell says in a news release that the grants will enable localities to more effectively market themselves to potential visitors.
