Eligible applicants for funding include any organization whose primary objective is promoting the Tourism industry in general and Holly Springs in particular, to visitors generating overnight stay and economic stimulus to the City. Grant monies are tax generated funds, thus the state of Mississippi Division of Tourism requirement/guidelines indicate that priority will be given to an organization that is a not-for-profit as defined by IRS regulations. The event should draw visitors (business travelers, vacationers, conventioneers, etc.) from outside Holly Springs (preferably over 50 to 100 miles, unless the Board approves less than 50 miles with qualification of sufficient overnight stays generated and restaurant visits) and/or will entice tourists to visit our attractions, spend the night in Holly Springs motels/bed & breakfast and eat in Holly Springs restaurants.
