Tourism grants available

The Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau (OPVB) is seeking applications for qualified tourism marketing project grants, primarily targeted to non-peak season activities within Clallam County.

Applications for the next round of grant funding are due Friday, Sept. 3.

Marsha Massey, executive director of Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau, said these Tourism Enhancement Grants are accepted four times each year.

“Our goal is to help develop a more year-round tourism base, to better contribute to a healthy local economy by supporting qualified local activities which help draw overnight visitors to our area,” Massey said in a press release.

Grant application deadlines for 2021 funds are Sept. 3 and Nov. 5.

OPVB board approval dates are tentatively set for Sept. 22, and Nov. 17.

Tourism Enhancement Grants support tourism marketing, collateral production, promotion of area festivals and events and tourism website development, primarily within Clallam County, bureau representatives said. Grant guidelines and applications are available at olympicpeninsula.org/page/tourism-grants.
