Seeking Grant Applications for 2019 Tourism Activities
Do you have a good idea for some tourism-related activities? We are now accepting applications for our Hotel-Motel Grant Program!
This program uses funds collected when people stay at local hotels, motels or RV parks to help encourage additional tourism in Ferndale.
Funding from the program may be used, directly by local jurisdictions, or indirectly through a convention and visitors bureau or destination marketing organization, for the marketing and operations of special events and festivals and to support the operations and capital expenditures of tourism-related facilities owned by nonprofit organizations described under section 501(c)(3) and section 501(c)(6) of the internal revenue code of 1986, as amended.
The Hotel-Motel Grant Program is managed by the Communications Officer, and recommendations on funding are made by the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee to the City Council, which has final say over allocation of funding.
DEADLINE IS AUGUST 3rd, 2018. No exceptions. You can find the application here.
If you have questions, please contact Communications Officer Riley Sweeney at (360) 685-2353 or by e-mail.
Note – the application has been updated from previous years to reduce the paperwork burden, please read through the new requirements if you are a returning applicant.
