The City of Woodinville is now accepting applications for its Tourism Promotion Grant Program through August 15, 2019 by 12:00pm. The goal of Woodinville’s program is to attract and welcome visitors to Woodinville throughout the year in order to stimulate the local economy and increase the number of overnight hotel stays. An estimated total of $110,000 in grant funding is available for 2020.

Tourism grant funding may be used to support an event, program, or activity designed to increase tourism by promoting the City as a tourism destination. Organizations eligible to receive grant funding include businesses and associations, as well as cultural, historical, educational, recreational, and community groups. Woodinville tourism promotion grants are paid by a portion of the one percent sales tax on hotel rooms located in Woodinville.

The Woodinville Lodging Tax Advisory Committee will evaluate qualifying applications on a competitive basis and provide a recommendation to City Council for approval. Tourism Promotion Grants are expected to be awarded in December, 2019.

Detailed requirements, evaluation criteria, and application information can be found in the Tourism Grant Application materials. For questions regarding the Tourism Promotion Grant Program, contact Blaine Fritts, City of Woodinville Finance & Administration Director, by email: BlaineF@ci.woodinville.wa.us or phone: (425) 877-2261.
