City seeks tourism grant applications

October 19, 2010

By Staff

Submit applications for tourism grants to help attract out-of-towners to Issaquah.

The city has $95,000 in hotel tax revenue to use to promote lodging and tourism. Interested parties can submit funding requests to the city Lodging Tax Advisory Committee until 4 p.m. Oct. 22.

The committee grants special consideration to projects with detailed work programs, records of luring visitors to Issaquah and using city money to leverage additional dollars.

Contact city Economic Development Manager Dan Trimble at 837-3012 or to learn more about the program.

The city collects a 1 percent lodging tax at three hotels and motels. The money is then allocated to the Lodging Tax Fund. Under state law, the revenue can be used only for tourism promotion, acquisition of tourism-related facilities or the operation of tourism-related facilities.
