Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Richland, Washington organizations for projects and activities that promote the local tourism industry. Funding is available to support the operation or acquisition of tourism-related facilities. Funding may also be requested to promote tourism opportunities in the local area.

Tourism promotion is defined in RCW 67.28.080 as “…activities and expenditures 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.”

Events/projects that produce a broad base for hotel/motel occupancy will be given higher priority over the financing of individual festivals, concerts, or shows.

A priority will be placed in off season programs and to those events which generate maximum economic benefit. Large events requiring overnight hotel stays should therefore be favored over smaller and/or single day events.

Given the City Council's desire to establish Richland as a center of athletic and cultural excellence, grants should be focused toward sporting, cultural, and leisure events. Creation and promotion of activities and events directed at young professionals/families that visit the area will strongly be encouraged.

The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) places an emphasis on the following when evaluating each application:
-How many room nights will the project generate?
-How reliable is the information provided?
-Validation of room nights generated will be required and there may be a placement of $5/room night generated cap up to a maximum grant amount.
-Does the project promote Richland and Richland hotels/motels outside of the Bi-County area?
-The Committee favors providing seed money to new events.
-The LTAC encourages all events and organizations to work towards total self-sufficiency.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Incorporated organizations in the City of Richland may apply.

Pre-Application Information:

The City's hotel/motel tax grant should "leverage" other funds. Unless the requesting agency is sponsoring an event that depends largely on volunteer efforts, hotel/motel grants should consequently not exceed 30% of the function's total cash budget.

Applications for 2018 hotel/motel grant funds will be accepted between Monday, August 21 - Saturday, September 30, 2017.

Applicants will have the opportunity to present their submittals to members of the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee at a yet-to-be-determined date. Applicants will be notified in a timely manner.
