Do you have an idea for a project or event that would attract visitors to Mocksville but need funding assistance to make it happen?
The Mocksville Tourism Development Authority (MTDA) is accepting grant proposals from non-profit and for-profit organizations for projects and events designed to attract visitors.
“If your event encourages folks to come to downtown and Davie County, share your idea and see if we can assist with some financial support. We want more visitors as well as our local citizens to enjoy this town and all we have to offer,” said Mocksville Community Development Director Tami Langdon.
These grants are funded through the town’s portion of the county’s hotel occupancy tax and are reviewed by the MTDA which assists with the development and marketing of Mocksville’s tourism attractions, assets, and potential tourism sites.
Past grants have supported events including:
• July 4th fireworks, Davie County Rec & Parks;
• Summer Concert Series, Davie County Rec & Parks;
• Food Truck Rodeo, Davie County Rec & Parks;
• River Park and Duck Race & Catfish Fry;
• Cycling events at Farmington Community Association;
• Main Street Half Marathon and Main Street 5K;
• Daniel Boone Family Festival; and
• Christmas program by the Davie Arts Council.
The 2022 grant cycle is open.
Any organization wishing to request funding must complete a Special Project Funding Request Form and the Budget Form found on the Town of Mocksville website. Applications are available to complete online or you may download and print a hard copy to submit. These forms must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on April 29. Applications received after the grant cycle is closed may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis or will be considered in the next grant cycle in the following fiscal year.
