2016 Lodging Tax Grant Program
The City of Vancouver is offering lodging tax grants for projects or events that increase overnight and day-visit tourism within the city. The grants are available to non-profit organizations or government agencies with projects, events or activities that increase visits to the city or help increase tourism-related revenues.
The grant application period ended at 3 p.m. on Sept. 14, 2016.
Applications will be reviewed by the City’s Lodging Tax Advisory Committee, who will then make funding recommendations to the Vancouver City Council. Grant funds will be disbursed in January 2017.
The grants are funded through a 4 percent lodging tax on hotel, motel and bed and breakfast stays.
