TDA accepting grant applications

Applications for the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority grant program are being accepted now through Jan. 22 via the HCTDA’s online application at

The TDA will award $500,000 in grant funding in three categories: Destination Marketing Grants, Destination Event Grants and Destination Enhancement Grants. Henderson County businesses and organizations are invited to apply for grant funding for tourism-related event and projects. Adhering to the TDA’s mission, all revenue generated through the occupancy tax collection must be used to promote Henderson County as a destination and to fund tourism-related projects. Occupancy tax collection comes from taxes paid by the visitors when they stay overnight at a lodging property.
