REDMOND, WA – The City of Redmond will accept applications for its 2017 Tourism Promotion Grant Program through Monday, October 31, at 5 pm. The goal of Redmond’s Tourism Promotion Program is to attract visitors to Redmond. Applicants may be cultural, historical, educational, sports, or community organizations coordinating events and tournaments that bring visitors to Redmond.

The grants are available to help fund projects that stimulate tourism and our local economy in Redmond, and are paid by a portion of the one percent sales tax on hotel rooms located in Redmond. Grants may not exceed 50 percent of the cost of the project.

The Redmond Lodging Tax Advisory Committee will evaluate qualifying applications on a competitive basis, using the official tourism promotion funding criteria, and will forward recommendations to the Mayor and City Council for approval. City Council will award the grants in January 2017.

Applications are available through the City of Redmond’s website www.redmond.gov/TourismGrant. For questions and more information, contact Lisa Rhodes, Communications & Marketing Manager, at larhodes@redmond.gov or 425-556-2427. This press release is available on www.redmond.gov.
