BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
For Immediate Release:
Upcoming 2019 Klamath County Grant Application Cycle
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 County Commissioners looks for projects that offer special or unique opportunities. Projects should identify a target market and offer a specific strategy for reaching this market. Events/projects occurring during the shoulder season—October to May—are strongly encouraged. (Up to 50 preference points will be awarded to events/projects occurring during the shoulder season.) 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 County Commissioners. The review panel recommends applications and funding levels to the Commissioners who will then make the final decision for awarding funds.
The grant application cycle opens on September 1 and closes at 5:00 pm on September 30, 2019. All applicants must attend a Marketing 101 class on September 10, 2019 at 3:00 pm in Room 214 of the Government Center and submit a completed application no later than the September 30, 2019 deadline. The Tourism Grant Review Panel will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners following that submission deadline.
Information regarding the grant program is available on the county website http://www.klamathcounty.org/199/Tourism-Grant-Program.
