Welcome to the micro-grant application for the Buncombe County Tourism Jobs Recovery Fund. The micro-grant application is streamlined and is for requests up to $5,000. If you are looking for the full grant application click here. An entity may only apply to either the micro or the full application, not both.
Applications must be completed and submitted no later than 11:59 PM on Sunday, May 31. Applications submitted after the deadline or that are incomplete (i.e., missing required uploads) will not be considered.
All applications completed and submitted before the deadline will be considered equally. There is no benefit to rushing an application. We encourage applicants to take their time to ensure a complete and well-supported request.
Before you begin:
A copy of the entire application is available here as a PDF and here as a Word doc if you wish to preview the application questions and prepare your responses before starting the application. (Note: you can only submit the application via this online form; these copies are just to help you prepare your responses and write content that you can paste into the online form).
Once you get started, you will be able to save the application and continue later if you need to.
Please also make sure you have prepared and/or gathered the following required documents:
Your business's most recent Federal tax return. If you have not yet filed a tax return for your business, you must instead provide a 2019 Year-End Profit & Loss Statement.
A copy of your North Carolina driver's license, or other government-issued photo ID
When you complete and submit the application, you will receive a copy of the application via email as a confirmation it was submitted.
If you run into any problems with the application, please check the FAQs and documentation at the Fund website, http://tourismfund.org. You can also schedule an appointment with a technical assistance provider through that site.
A final note: both businesses and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for these grants. In order to save space and simplify the form, we use the word "business" throughout this application to signify both nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
Thank you for the important work you do in the community and we look forward to receiving your micro-grant request to the Buncombe County Tourism Jobs Recovery Fund.
