Vancouver, Wash. -- The City of Vancouver is now accepting grant applications for projects or events that will increase overnight and day-visit tourism within the city.

The guidelines, application and budget form for the City's lodging tax grants are available on the City's website at http://www.cityofvancouver.us/ltac/page/2017-lodging-tax-grant-program-guidelines

Grant applications must be received by 3 p.m. on Sept. 13. Applications will be reviewed by the City's Lodging Tax Advisory Committee, who will make funding recommendations to the Vancouver City Council. Grant funds will be disbursed in January 2018.

The lodging tax 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 grants are funded through a 4 percent lodging tax on hotel, motel and bed and breakfast stays.

An optional grant overview and orientation meeting for those interested in applying will be held at 3:30 p.m. on July 25 in the Aspen Conference Room at City Hall, 415 W. 6th St., Vancouver.
