City of Renton accepting applications for 2023 Tourism Promotion Grants

Deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2022

RENTON, WA – The City of Renton has opened the application process for 2023 tourism promotion grants.

Non-profit organizations operating events or installations designed to attract tourism to Renton are encouraged to apply. Events need not occur within the Renton city limits. However, they must show measurable drive-in tourism within the city limits. Organizations may apply for multiple events. Capital expenditures are not eligible for funding.

The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) reviews applications and forwards funding recommendations to Renton City Council, which makes the final determination.

LTAC encourages applications involving multiday events, including athletics and events promoting diversity and inclusivity. Additionally, the committee seriously considers projects with a proven record of attracting overnight visitors.

The application deadline is 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2022, and finalists will present to LTAC on November 8 via Zoom. The committee will make its final recommendations in December.

Interested parties can find the application and more information online. Questions concerning the application process may be directed to Jessie Kotarski, Economic Development Manager, at 425-430-7271 or via email.

Washington state's Hotel-Motel Tax, collected on all in-city lodging stays of less than 30 days, funds Tourism Promotion Grants.
