Visit Rancho Cordova is the official destination organization for Rancho Cordova, CA. Visit Rancho Cordova is funded by a TBID (Tourism Business Improvement District) in Rancho Cordova; collecting an assessment from each room night sold.
The purpose of the Marketing Sponsorship Program is to provide funding assistance to organizations conducting special events and programs in Rancho Cordova, CA.
In addition to the stated purpose of the funds, eligibility guidelines and policies further stipulate that:
