Each year Visit Highlands, NC supports local nonprofits through the Tourism Grant program and Sponsorships.
These grants and sponsorships are funded by Occupancy Tax, which is paid by guests staying in Highlands’ accommodations.
Highlands Chamber anticipates assisting more nonprofits as we all work together to make Highlands a great place to live and visit.
Highlands Performing Arts Center received $20,000 and Mountain Theatre Company received $15,000.
The Highlands Chamber thanks all local nonprofits that provide education, entertainment, and culture for residents and visitors and encourage everyone to support and enjoy the programs provided by our local nonprofits.
For more information about applying for a Tourism Grant or Sponsorship email Highlands Chamber at Grants@highlandschamber.org.
