BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
For Immediate Release:
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 are limiting the Fall 2020 cycle to infrastructure applications only. 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 15, 2020 and closes at 5:00 pm on October 14, 2020. The Marketing 101 class will not be held for this infrastructure only cycle. The Tourism Advisory Review Panel will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners following the submission deadline of 5:00 pm, October 14, 2020.
Information regarding the grant program is available on the county website http://www.klamathcounty.org/199/Tourism-Grant-Program.
