HCTDA Grants Program
Funding Projects That Benefit
Please note, the Henderson County Tourism Development Authority (HCTDA) 2022/2023 Grant Cycle is no longer accepting applications. We look forward to learning about your project in the 2023/2024 Grant Application Period.
The HCTDA offers an annual grant program to benefit tourism-related businesses and non-profit organizations as a way to build Henderson County into an even stronger tourist destination — the better you are, the better we are! The yearly grant program accepts applications from December through January, with selections and disbursements being made in the spring (see timeline below for exact dates).
In the 2022/2023 Grant Cycle, 4 info sessions were held leading up to the grant request period.
1) Watch a recording of the General Info Meeting
2) Watch a recording of the Destination Enhancement Grant Info Meeting
3) Watch a recording of the Marketing Grant Info Meeting
4) Watch a recording of the Event Grant Info Meeting
Grants are awarded in 3 categories: Marketing Grants, to promote your business or event; Event Grants, to support the operations budget of the event; and Destination Enhancement Grants, which includes building new or improving existing assets.
The HCTDA is empowered to award grant funding through state tax legislation using occupancy tax collection monies, and decisions on grant recipients are made by a Grants Committee that is comprised of HCTDA Board members and representatives from the community.
