Klamath County has established a Tourism Grant Program to assist local event planners and tourism-focused businesses in promoting tourism in Klamath County. Tourism grants are for regional promotion of events and activities that increase tourism within Klamath County. The Board of Commissioners look for projects that offer special or unique opportunities. Projects should identify a target market and offer a specific strategy for reaching this market. Infrastructure projects are eligible for funding up to $50,000. Marketing and Event projects are eligible for funding up to $25,000. Funding for the Tourism Grant Program comes from the countywide transient room tax that is administered by the Klamath County Tax Collector.
Grant applications are reviewed and recommendations made by a seven-member review panel appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The review panel recommends applications and funding levels to the Board of Commissioners who will then make the final decision for awarding funds.
The grant application cycle opens on September 1, 2021 and closes at 5:00 pm on September 30, 2021. All applicants must attend a Marketing 101 class on September 10, 2021 at 3:00 pm in Room 214 of the Government Center. All applications must be submitted no later than the September 30, 2021 deadline. The Tourism Advisory Review Panel will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners following that submission deadline.
Information regarding the grant program is available on the county website Tourism Grant | Klamath County, OR
