Attention: Lodging Tax Event Grant Applicants
The 2018 Lodging Tax Event Grant Application is now available for local events intending to attract visitors from outside the North Olympic Peninsula Region. The application is intended to ensure that the revenue created by the City’s lodging tax is administered in a way that will generate the most benefit to local businesses and lodging facilities.
The program strives to incentivize and place more emphasis supporting new events, and events occurring outside the peak tourist season (Mid-September through May). Overall focus is on demonstrating positive lodging impacts. Funding may be used for the marketing and operations of an event, including the cost of right-of-way use permits and traffic control. Funding will not be allocated for the purchase of equipment or the improvement of property.
The 2018 Lodging Tax Event Grant Application consists of a cover page delegated to contact information and an application questionnaire. All information must be filled out completely and attachments presented in the order designated on the coversheet, or the application will be deemed incomplete.
The Community and Economic Development Department understands that newer events may have trouble answering some of the event related questions in the questionnaire, but asks that the questions be answered to the best of the applicant’s ability.
For general questions, or if any assistance is required to complete the application packet, the applicant can contact:
