The Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau has set an application deadline of April 1 for the group’s second round of 2017 Tourism Enhancement Grants.
This year, $45,000 in total grant funding is available for qualified projects focused on tourism promotion with $27,800 remaining after the first round of applications.
Grant guidelines and applications are available at www.olympicpeninsula.org/page/tourism-grants. Call OPVB Executive Director Marsha Massey for more information at 452-8552.
Future grant applications must be submitted for consideration by the bureau’s board at its monthly meetings (as long as funds are available) by the first day of the month prior to the scheduled review meetings in September and November. Funds for this grant program are derived from revenue generated by the hotel/motel tax on lodging facilities in unincorporated Clallam County.
The Big Hurt, GOAT Run, Olympic Birdfest, Tour de Lavender, NW Colonial Festival and the North Olympic Discovery Marathon were all awarded grants in February.
