For mid-level projects and programs that reach a larger audience, train a sub-section of cultural bearers/cultural workers for specific tasks over a limited period, support larger community events with a broader impact on the cultural economy.
For larger scale projects and programs that stretch over a larger time period, reach a wide audience, train a class of culture bearer/worker in multiple skills, larger multi-community/city-wide events.
WHY MEASURE ECONOMIC IMPACT AND SUSTAINABILITY? Currently, the Hotel Occupancy Privilege Tax is the only source of revenue for NOTCF. This tax is generated when hotel rooms in the New Orleans area are occupied. Positive economic impact for the City of New Orleans has the potential to drive the Hotel Occupancy taxes and therefore, allow NOTCF to support events at higher levels each year. Sustainability measures allow organizers and the NOTCF applicant review committee to consider the long-term view of the organization and any potential challenges an organizer might face with an event. Consideration of challenges allows the organizers to develop plans to mitigate those challenges so that an event can be executed successfully.
