CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia officials are awarding $710,000 in tourism advertising grants, including assistance for The Greenbrier resort's professional golf tournament.

The West Virginia Tourism Commission requires the recipients to pour in investments to receive grants. Businesses are spending $1 million to be eligible for the state incentive money.

After investing $150,000, The Greenbrier Classic will receive $100,000 in grants to support a broadcast ad campaign for the July golf tournament.

Two other initiatives will also receive $100,000.

Adventures on the Gorge's campaign will focus on getting more youth involved in outdoor activities, while promoting longer multisport packages.

Fayette-Mercer-Raleigh County Winter Coalition's ad push seeks to bring more multiday visitors in for winter activities.

Both are investing $150,000 to secure the matching grants.
