TMVOA is announcing its 2014 grant funding program. TMVOA values its relationships with local non-profit organizations that help provide year round economic vitality, sence of community and a quality experience for Mountain Village property owners and guests.
In light of continuing decreases in RETA revenues over the past two years, the budget available for TMVOA economic development grants has been reduced. In 2013, the total awarded for economic development grants was $74,500. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, the total awarded to economic development grants and charitable donations was $169,346, $154,541 and $129,500 respectively.
In 2012, the TMVOA Prioritization Committee changed its name to the TMVOA Grants & Events Committee to further define the scope of grants offered. The Committee determined that organizations that were seeking funds for economic development activities in Mountain Village should apply to TMVOA. The Grants & Events Committee will review the requests and provide their funding recommendations to the TMVOA board. The TMVOA Board will approve the recommendations made by this Committee at the November 13, 2013 Members Budget Meeting.
TMVOA requests are reviewed in light of TMVOA economic development grant policy and are consistent with TMVOA mission statement and statement of purpose for grant funding below:
TMVOA Mission Statement:
To preserve and promote a vital resort community for its members, with attention to creating a sustainable village with a vibrant economy.
Statement of Purpose for Grant Funding:
