Cape Charles Main Street has received $20,000 from the Virginia Tourism Corporation’s (VTC) Recovery Marketing Leverage Program (RMLP).
The grant is purported to aid towns whose existence relies on tourism dollars. The monies are to be used to attract more visitors by matching local marketing dollars of the state grants funds.
$1.9 million in matching grant funds were awarded to 161 local tourism initiatives through this year.
Cape Charles Main Street will use the VTC Recovery Marketing Leverage grant funds to drive more people to visit Cape Charles through the shoulder seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring), no matter the impact on the lives of local residents and neighborhoods.
