Currituck County Travel & Tourism Event Grant Program
The mission of the Currituck County Department of Travel & Tourism is promotion of the County’s beaches and Mainland to attract guests for the purpose of visitation spending.
Visitation generated by Currituck Travel & Tourism promotion strengthens the local economy by local and state sales taxes collected through visitor spending. The economic impact of these taxes enhances the quality of life for Currituck County residents and encourages tourism-related business growth.
We encourage visitor spending by:
- Assisting County tourism-related businesses with advertising & marketing promotion;
- Creating and producing events to draw visitors to Currituck; and
- Providing visitors with information on County tourism-related businesses, attractions, activities, events, accommodations, services and historical sites located in Currituck County by digital advertising, print promotion and welcome centers.
For the purposes of this grant program, Currituck Travel & Tourism is focusing on assisting non-profit organizations and for-profit businesses to produce quality events (#2 above) that will attract visitors to Currituck County.
