If you are trying to organize a festival or cultural event in the Charlottesville area, you can now apply for cash to help out.

The Charlottesville Albemarle Convention and Visitors Bureau is taking submissions for its spring 2014 tourism sponsorship program. The group will provide dollar-for-dollar matching of up to $7,500 per chosen organization for marketing initiatives.

“People who want to set up festivals and events around here need support, they need to support to market their events properly and our goal with the CACVB is to try to bring visitors from out of area,” said Bri Warner, director of sales and marketing for the CACVB.

The deadline for organizations to apply is February 8.
