Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations for programs to promote the arts, culture, and tourism in eligible locations. Eligible activities will contribute to the development of the local economy. Funding requests shall be for facilities, events, and projects located within the City limits of Cannon Beach.

Expenditures from the TAF are used to attract tourists (per the definition of “tourist” in ORS 320.350) to the City through efforts directly related to marketing and enhancing the Arts in Cannon Beach. The TAF proceeds must be utilized in such a manner as to contribute to the development and improvement of the local economy through the enhancement, expansion, support and promotion of tourism and the arts.

Priority will be given to grant applicants that demonstrate an effort to generate overnight tourists, tourists traveling more than 50 miles from their community of residence, and collaboration with various local businesses and/or non-profit organizations through strategic partnerships to leverage TAF resources being sought. 

Priority will be given for events within Cannon Beach during the shoulder and winter tourist season defined as September through June. Advertising or marketing of tourism related facilities, events, and projects (as defined in ORS 320.350) included as part of the TAF funding request shall be for facilities, events, and projects located within the City limits of Cannon Beach. Funds for events or projects within 5 miles of the City limits of Cannon Beach may be considered.
