City seeks tourism grant applicants
October 2, 2012
The committee responsible for doling out lodging tax dollars for tourism projects and programs is accepting grant applications.
The municipal Lodging Tax Advisory Committee plans to distribute about $85,000 in 2013. Past recipients include the Issaquah Visitor’s Center, Issaquah History Museums and the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce Festivals Office.
The 1 percent lodging tax is collected by three hotels and motels. Under state law, revenue can only be used to pay all or any part of tourism promotion, acquisition of tourism-related facilities or the operation of tourism-related facilities.
Find the application on the city’s website, www.ci.issaquah.wa.us. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. Oct. 22.
