The primary mission of the HCCVB is to promote awareness, visibility and the uniqueness of Hardy County as a travel destination and to establish and sustain community partnerships that strengthen Hardy County’s tourism industry.
The Tourism Advertising Program offers three grant opportunities to leverage marketing dollars and increase the number of visitors to your event or business: the Event Advertising Grant, the Lodging Rack Card Grant and the Industry Rack Card Grant. Please read the guidelines, individual applications and logo requirements to understand the eligibility criteria and the differences between each grant.
Qualified applicants may apply for up to $500 for advertising events and $250 for the rack cards. There are limitations as to how often you may apply. All grants require either a cash or in-kind match depending on your organizational status. In addition, please note that the logo standards for crediting the HCCVB for the support you receive are clearly outlined in the Logo Requirements attachment.
