Grays Harbor Tourism grants available

October 3, 2013

The Grays Harbor County Department of Tourism is now accepting applications for two tourism related grant programs.

This first grant is for Festival and Events, and the second is for Tourism Services and Projects. The deadline for applications for both categories is October 31, 2013.

Grant Applications will be accepted from non-profits to increase tourism within Grays Harbor, except those in towns that are allowed by law to collect their own lodging tax.

The Grays Harbor Tourism Department allocates over $120,000 in grant funds annually.

“We are very fortunate that our County Commissioners have continued to support the funding of this Grant Program. They understand that Tourism is vital to Grays Harbor’s economic success.” said Kelly Peterson-Lalka, GH Tourism Public Relations/Office Manager. “Tourism results in over $260 million dollars of revenue and over 5,000 jobs for Grays Harbor County. When we support tourism, our local communities reap the rewards in tax revenue, jobs and community infrastructure. It is a win-win.”

Applications for Grant Funding are available for download on the Grays Harbor Tourism website http://www.visitgraysharbor.com or if you would like an application mailed to you, contact Kelly Peterson-Lalka at 360-482-2651 or petersonk@co.grays-harbor.wa.us.
