Grants to Grant County, Washington nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and, in certain limited cases, for-profit businesses for projects and events that promote tourism in the local area. Funding may be used for events, festivals, capital projects related to tourism facilities, and general tourism promotion.

Eligible Grant Categories

1) General Tourism Promotion – This category provides funds to promote or publicize tourism promotion programs in Grant County. This could include, but is not limited to, such programs as producing a marketing brochure highlighting the county’s unique tourist features; and the implementation of certain tourism elements of an Economic Development Plan.

2) Special Events/Festivals – This category will provide funds to projects that promote existing and new special events/festivals. These special events/festivals, either existing or new, must be open to all and have a clear goal of attracting tourism to the county. Proposals for existing special events/festivals must demonstrate that requested funds are for expanded tourist related elements and not simply to replace existing funding.

3) Capital Projects – This category will provide funds to support county- owned capital projects related to tourism.

The county does not make any multi-year commitments with LTAC funds, however, service providers are not limited or prohibited from making repeat annual requests of the same nature or for projects that span more than one year.

Organizations may apply for and receive funding in subsequent years; however, continuity of funds is not guaranteed.

Grant County considers lodging tax funded proposals from government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and in limited cases, for-profit organizations.

The program is open to grant applications from any public and/or private entity with the demonstrated ability to accomplish the proposed project.

This includes, but is not limited to, Grant County; nonprofit arts, cultural, heritage, educational and community organizations; museums; historical societies; chambers of commerce; and other public or private business groups.

Informal groups are eligible to apply under the umbrella of another eligible organization as a fiscal agent.

Collaborative projects are encouraged. Eligibility of sponsors and projects are defined broadly to encourage wide participation and innovative proposals.

Applications must be received at the Grant County Courthouse no later than 5:00 PM on the first Monday in December of any given year. The next application deadline is Monday, December 5, 2016.
