Tourism grants available now

PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau is accepting applications for tourism marketing project grants.

Grants are available for projects that support tourism marketing, collateral production, promotion of area festivals or events and website development.

The grants are funded with lodging taxes collected from hotels and motels in the unincorporated portions of Clallam County; projects must market events and activities that are primarily within the county.

“Our goal is to help develop a more year-round tourism base, to better contribute to a healthy local economy by supporting qualified local activities, which help draw overnight visitors to our area,” said Marsha Massey, the bureau’s executive director.

Guidelines for the grants and application forms are available at www.olympicpeninsula.org/industry.

Applications for the current round of funding must be received by Sept. 3.

Decisions on grant applications should be available by Sept. 22.

The deadline for the final round of 2021 grants is Nov. 5.

For more information, call Massey at 360-452-8552.
