A qualified organization’s request will be considered for funding from the hotel/motel grant program if the activities or proposed project for the fiscal year meets the intent of Iowa Code for use of the Hotel and Motel Tax. The basis of the intent is to support items that will bring additional Hotel and Motel taxes through additional lodging in Marion or the surrounding areas. Typically, these organizations are recreational, cultural, and entertainment oriented.
