Eligibility

Eligible Projects will promote community development related to tourism and/or enhance tourism within Northampton County, such as activities/events/venues which measurably increase the number of visitors to the County and/or promote Northampton County's unique cultural and/or historic value.  Applicants must fall within one of the categories identified below:
  • Federally registered non-profit entity (501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4))
  • Municipal entity located within Northampton County
In addition, events and activities must occur in Northampton County. These funds are intended to support events or project expenses such as promotional costs and capital improvements. Applicants relying on these funds as a general source of annual operating funds, such as requests to support core staffing costs and other administrative operational expenses typically covered by the organization, will be considered less competitive in the application review and selection process.
 
All grants will be awarded based on a review process. Projects that can most effectively address some or all of the following will receive preference:
  • The project promotes visitation to sites within the County that promote our unique cultural and/or historic value. Organizations must attempt to measure the number of participants (out-of-town tourists vs. local resident participation).
  • The project will measurably increase the number of visitors to Northampton County
  • The project measurably improves public health and/or wellness
  • The project is a collaborative partnership with other Northampton County entities
  • The project demonstrates, at a minimum, 25% in matching funds, of which no more than 50% can be in-kind services
  • The project supports historic preservation.

Terms

These funds are intended to support non-recurring costs such as event or project expenses, promotional costs, upgrades, and expansions.  Applicants relying on these funds as a general source of annual operating funds such as requests to support core staffing costs and other administrative expenses usually expected to be covered by the organization, will be considered less competitive.
