County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to support the activities of Venture East, a partnership organized to market eco-, agri-, heritage, and recreational tourism in the 41-county region east of I-95 in North Carolina. This project will establish a brand identity for the region as “IBX” or “Inner Banks, Eastern North Carolina.” It will also allow communities, counties, and towns to aggregate resources under a regional brand, and therefore extend the impact of public and private investment.
