Through July 27, the Town of Matthews will accept applications for its annual tourism grants.
The town has allocated $70,000 to give to organizations who will use the money to offer events, including cultural programs and festivals. The grants also may be used for off-street parking that would be used in conjunction with the events.
In the past the town has given tourism grants to the Matthews Rotary’s Chili Cook-off and festival, baseball tournaments, Matthews Alive!, the Matthews Playhouse and more.
Applications are available online at www.matthewsnc.com.
