Golden LEAF Grant
The purpose of the grant is to assist Dare County in developing an overall branding and coordinated marketing effort for seafood from Currituck, Dare, Hyde and Tyrrell Counties. The Program is expected to increase consumer demand for local seafood products in restaurants and retail establishments and encourage consumers to pay a premium price for local products. The program will be modeled after similar successful programs in the state.
Golden LEAF’s mission is to promote the social welfare of North Carolina’s citizens and to receive and distribute funds for economic impact assistance to economically affected or tobacco-dependent regions of North Carolina.
The Foundation awards grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofits and governmental entities across North Carolina. Golden LEAF’s grantsmaking focuses on three priorities: agriculture, job creation and retention, and workforce preparedness. Projects that focus on other opportunities to support and develop economic strength in tobacco-dependent, economically distressed, and/or rural communities continue to be welcomed.
