Beaufort County tourism-related organizations have until Aug. 5 to submit applications for accommodations-tax grants.
Funding for the grants comes from a 2 percent tax on hotels, motels, inns and vacation rentals. The county awarded about $477,000 in such grants to local organizations this fiscal year.
Applications will only be accepted electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will not be accepted if they are incomplete or submitted after 5 p.m. Aug. 5. Applicants who do not receive an interview schedule by Aug. 19 should call 843-255-2180.
Application forms can be obtained at the county's website at www.bcgov.net.
