TDA awards grants to festivals

The Henderson County Tourism Development Authority awarded $20,000 in grants for festivals, art shows and other events that draw visitors to town. A total of 10 applicants requested grant funding totaling $24,817.

The TDA invites non-profit organizations to apply for advertising and promotional funding through the 2018-2019 grant program. These reimbursable grants are awarded annually to Henderson County non-profit organizations for the purpose of promoting events, attractions and festivals that draw visitors from more than 40 miles outside Henderson County and encourage overnight stays, stimulating spending and boosting the local economy.

The funding is available for the new fiscal year starting July 1. For more information contact the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority during regular business hours.
