2018 Tourism Funding Applications

Lodging taxes (also known as Hotel-Motel Taxes) are the sole source of revenue for the Tourism Fund. The Washington State Legislature restricts use of those funds to marketing tourism, festivals & events, or operating/building tourism related facilities. Each year applications for funding are evaluated by a Tourism Advisory Committee. The 2018 tourism funding applications are due by 4 PM Tuesday, October 24, 2017. The application packages are available here.
