Discover EC Partner Programs 2016-2017
The Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (ECACVB) has established Tourism Grants utilizing funding that has been earmarked for marketing of events and partners exhibiting positive tourism potential to the Elizabeth City area.
The goal of the Elizabeth City Tourism Grant would be to assist events and partners that the ECACVB believes have the potential to grow substantially. Tourism grants will be awarded on an individual case basis. Please note that the ECACVB will not be the sole source of funding for any event or partner.
The grant program runs year-round. Last year, the ECACVB gave out over $80,000 in grants to events and tourism partners. Grant application guidelines are outlined in the pdf download.
A partner has the opportunity to purchase a 1/4 of a page color ad to run on Saturdays in the Virginian-Pilot for $700. If there are multiple partners who are interested in this opportunity, the ad can be split into smaller sections. Contact the ECACVB to learn more.
