BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
For Immediate Release:
Upcoming 2023 Klamath County Tourism 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 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 strongly encouraged for this cycle as well as events/projects occurring during the shoulder season-October to May. 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, 2023 and closes at 5:00 pm on September 30, 2023. Applicants attend a Marketing 101 class on Thursday, September 14 at 3:00 pm in Room 214 of the Government Center and complete an application no later than the September 30, 2023 deadline. (If your organization has received a Klamath County Tourism Grant in the past 18 months your attendance is NOT required at the Marketing 101 class.) The Tourism Advisory Review Panel will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners following that submission deadline.
