This tourism promotion money comes from Port Angeles hotel-motel-B&B bed taxes.
The money is disbursed by the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors based on recommendations by the chamber’s Special Events Committee. Grants totaling about $65,000 have already been made.
Deadline for submitting an application for a tourism promotion grant is 5 p.m. Monday, March 31.
To obtain a grant-request application, and criteria for receiving the money, email Russ Veenema, the chamber’s executive director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there are questions, phone Veenema at 360-452-2363, Ext. 13.
Only applications emailed by the March 31 deadline will be considered.
“This is part of the contract the chamber has with the city to market the community,” said Veenema. “The grants vary a great deal depending on the size of the event or project and the potential return on investment to the city.”
