Those interested in receiving grant funds should submit an application summarizing the activity or event, how it supports tourism, and a proposed budget indicating how lodging tax dollars will be used. Applications are due by Thursday, August 31 at 5 p.m.
The city’s Lodging Tax Advisory Committee will review proposals and forward recommendations to the Battle Ground City Council for final determination of awards in December of this year. Grant awards are distributed on a reimbursement basis.
