CORE Program

The Town of Black Mountain is proud to announce that we are one of 34 counties in North Carolina that have been chosen to participate in the Creating Outdoor Recreation Economies (CORE) Program through the North Carolina Department of Commerce's Rural Economic Development Division. 

The CORE Program is a component of the Supporting and Strengthening Resiliency in North Carolina's Travel, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation Sectors initiative that was awarded a $6 million U.S. Economic Development Administration State Tourism Grant.  

The Town will be working with local stakeholders through a strategic planning process to identify and develop outdoor recreation assets that present economic growth opportunities.
