The Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority is accepting applications for requests for funding from the Tourism Product Development Fund (TPDF) for the 2014 grants cycle. As guided by legislation, tourism projects must demonstrate that they can generate substantial new and incremental room nights, and therefore increase the economic impact on the community, to be considered for a grant or loan. Information on the new process, schedule and links to the 2014 application files can be found here.
Interested applicants are encouraged to attend the TPDF Application Process Information Session scheduled on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce Board Room at 36 Montford Avenue. RSVP not required.
Please direct additional questions to Pat Kappes, Public Affairs Manager, at 828-210-2724 or pkappes@ExploreAsheville.com.
