NASHVILLE (AP) — State officials say 29 cities and counties will receive more than $999,000 in grants to help communities improve their tourism infrastructure.

Officials say the grants will help counties and cities in Tennessee increase the economic impact of tourism. The grants range from about $5,000 to $50,000.

Department of Tourist Development Commissioner Kevin Triplett says tourism is an important part of every community, "but in some cases we were finding a lack of infrastructure to fully take advantage of some tourism opportunities."

The counties receiving grants are Anderson, Carroll, Decatur, Fentress, Greene, Hamblen, Hamilton, Johnson, Lauderdale, Meigs, Monroe, Robertson, Scott, Smith, Unicoi and Wayne.

The cities and towns that are getting grants are: Bolivar, Brownsville, Cleveland, Etowah, Gainesboro, Henderson, Lafayette, Livingston, Manchester, McMinnville, Lynchburg, Tiptonville and Winchester.
