Hillsborough Tourism Board Accepting Grant Applications

The Hillsborough Tourism Board is accepting grant applications from local nonprofits for programs and projects that will increase tourism and help more people enjoy Hillsborough and all it has to offer. 

Funded projects must take place between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, and applications are due by 11:59 p.m. March 23. To streamline the process and make scoring more efficient, all applications will be made online via the submission management system Submittable: hillsboroughnc.submittable.com/submit

Grant requests can range from $500 to $10,000 and require a 20-percent match from recipients. Applicants seeking funding for multiple projects must complete separate applications for each project.

“Every year, we release these funds to great organizations who do great work for our tourism program and community,” said Shannan Campbell, Hillsborough’s economic development planner and the staff support to the Tourism Board. “We can’t wait to see who applies and what kind of ideas everyone has.”

The Hillsborough Tourism Board will choose which programs and projects to fund at its meeting on May 7. Past recipients have included organizers of public concerts, art and food festivals, theatrical productions, and historical exhibits.
