Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, public agencies, and for-profits for tourism and cultural projects in eligible areas. Funding is intended for marketing, operations of special events, festivals, and capital expenditures for tourism-related facilities. Applicants must serve the residents of Ferndale.

The objective of the City of Ferndale Lodging Tax Advisory Committee Process is to support projects which encourage eligible tourism and cultural activities and support tourism facilities in Ferndale.

Funding from the program may be used, directly by local jurisdictions, or indirectly through a convention and visitors bureau or destination marketing organization, for the marketing and operations of special events and festivals and to support the operations and capital expenditures of tourism-related facilities owned by nonprofit organizations described under section 501(c)(3) and section 501(c)(6) of the internal revenue code of 1986, as amended.

Events, projects, activities, and facilities that also serve the broader community will be given preference.

The law allows the use of lodging tax revenues in either of two broad categories: tourism promotion or tourism-related facilities:

  • "Tourism promotion" is defined as activities designed to increase tourism, including, but not limited to advertising, publicizing, or otherwise distributing information for the purpose of attracting and welcoming tourists, developing strategies to expand tourism, operating tourism promotion agencies, and funding marketing of special events and festivals designed to attract tourists.
  • "Tourism-related facility" means real or tangible personal property with a usable life of three or more years, or constructed with volunteer labor and used to support tourism, performing arts, or to accommodate tourist activities. 

Seed money that will help establish the activity, program, event, organization, or facility which will later function successfully on its own are preferred.
