JUNE 1: Deadline for Tourism Product Development Fund Phase I Applications
The Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority, through the Tourism Product Development Fund (TPDF), has invested more than $44 million in support of 39 community projects since 2001 – from greenways, parks and soccer fields to culture, heritage, the visual and performing arts, and iconic places and spaces like the WNC Nature Center, NC Arboretum, YMI Cultural Center and WNC Farmers Market.
The 2022 grant cycle for the fund, which comes from a portion of the lodging tax paid by visitors, is underway, with awards to be announced this fall. Buncombe County nonprofits and municipal partners are invited to apply. See an overview of the timeline, policies, requirements & criteria here.
June 1 at 5 p.m. is the deadline for Phase I applications.
