Sports Funding Application

Sports Daytona Beach Logo

The Daytona Beach Area CVB (DBACVB) Sports Sales division is under the Halifax Area Advertising Authority (HAAA) – The mission of HAAA is to contribute to and enhance the overall economic prosperity of the Halifax Area Taxing District and all of Volusia County through the successful promotion of the area as a preferred tourism destination.

The DBACVB recognizes sports as a major contributor to the overall tourism economy. In order to develop this business, the DBACVB has put in place an Event Funding Program. All requests for funds must receive the recommendation from the CVB Sports Advisory Committee and Halifax Area Advertising Authority Board of Directors. Once a sponsorship amount has been allocated, we will not disburse funds until after the event has been completed and a post-event economic impact report has been produced. 

Application Deadline: Funding applications will be reviewed on a quarterly basis unless alternate accommodations have been made. The amount of funding requested will be a factor in determining the length of this process.

  • Within 30 days after the completion of the event, the organization must submit a Post Event Report, copy of collateral displaying the DBACVB logo, Invoice for grant funds (addressed to Halifax Area Advertising Authority), and a W-9 tax form. After a review of the Post Event Report, grant funds will be forwarded to the organization.
  • If the original award amount must be prorated due to major changes in the event, an updated invoice will be requested with the new award amount.
  • The DBACVB will conduct random audits to promote the accuracy of attendance and room nights reported in the Post Event Report.
  • Natural disasters and other incidents that may affect the impact generated by the event will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

All questions can be directed to: Brandon Little, Sports Business Development Manager,, 386-255-0415 ext. 138
