PEABODY, MA — Peabody Main Streets was one of several North Shore organizations to share in the state’s Travel & Tourism Recovery grant funding
TTR Grants are dedicated to campaigns and initiatives that increase consumer spending, support local businesses, and advance community recovery efforts to support businesses in Massachusetts.
Peabody Main Streets Inc. was one of the Tier 1 recipients of a $45,000 award.
The Play in Peabody campaign will use the city’s “Most Playful City USA” designation to encourage day/overnight visitors throughout the city, highlighting landmarks, special events, dining/shopping options and hotels.
Beverly Main Streets, the Essex National Heritage Commission, the North Shore Community Development Coalition and Destination Salem also received comparable awards.
