Grants to Mountlake Terrace, Washington nonprofit organizations and public agencies for initiatives that will promote tourism, such as events and festivals. Activities should result in increased economic activity, such as meals, purchases, and overnight lodging.

-Whether the proposed expenditures create a positive economic impact;
-Whether the applicant demonstrates a need for the funding and the ability to complete the project;
