Each year the City of Woodinville provides lodging tax grants to organizations to fund special events, programs, and activities that will attract tourists to Woodinville. This grant program is highly competitive and typically funds multiple tourism initiatives each year.
The total funding available for 2018 is $92,000 (subject to change by the Woodinville City Council). Examples of past projects include city wayfinding signs, the annual Celebrate Woodinville summer event, and marketing programs designed to attract visitors to Woodinville.
Applications for 2018 lodging tax grants will be accepted through August 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Applicants must submit a complete application that summarizes event/program logistics, outlines a proposed budget, and designates the responsible party for carrying out the event/program. The application can be found on the City's website at www.ci.woodinville.wa.us/Documents/News/Announcements/ 2017_08_07_Press_Release_Tourism_Grant.pdf.
