Request a Grant Writer

Grants averaging $2,000 to Washington nonprofits and groups for activities that encourage tourism and economic benefit in the City of Snohomish. Programs may include events and festivals that attract visitors to overnight lodging and distributing and promotion information that welcomes visitors.

Activities considered eligible for assistance include, but are not limited to, those that increase tourism by promoting and distributing information for the purpose of attracting and welcoming visitors; operation of a tourism promotion agency, and the marketing of events and festivals designed to draw overnight lodging to the city.

The expected outcome of such activities is to increase economic activity in the City of Snohomish through overnight lodging, visitor spending on dining and attractions, and the sale of gifts, souvenirs and other items to visitors and tourists. This aligns with the Snohomish City Council’s strategic initiative to “Strengthen the City’s attractiveness as a regional destination”.

Money is awarded from revenue collected annually from hotel and motel room rentals in Snohomish.

Each application is to develop and outline a project, which meets these requirements and provides an economic benefit to the City of Snohomish. The specific amount of the applicant’s request is open, to be defined by the application. As a recommendation, the application may wish to define alternate levels of funding, indicating as their first priority the maximum amount desired and, as a second priority, the minimum acceptable amount.

Some definition of the differences in the level of services to be provided under the two priorities should be included. The establishment of alternate funding levels will allow the City Council some latitude in approving projects without the necessity of rejecting one or more projects due to a potential lack of funds.
