Groups proposing projects that will enhance and promote tourism in Marysville in 2022 are invited to apply for the city’s Tourism Grant Program. Deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 24.
The program is aimed at increasing tourism and encouraging overnight stays in Marysville through tourism-related events and projects. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to:
- Sporting events
- Trade shows
- Performing arts or entertainment
- Marysville tourism promotion
Qualified, private non-profit groups with demonstrated ability to accomplish projects are invited to apply; these may include organizations such as historical societies, art groups, chambers of commerce, museums and galleries, youth activity organizations and service clubs. Eligible applicants must be able to demonstrate nonprofit status.
Funding comes from a 2% lodging tax paid by customers of hotels and motels within Marysville city limits. Proposed projects must comply with state statutes that govern the use of lodging tax funds.
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis for partial project cost reimbursement. Find more information and the application packet online at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/785/Tourism-Grant-Program-HotelMotel-Tax.
