Lodging Tax Funding for 2024

Deadline for filing applications was July 28, 2023.


In accordance with state law, applicants for lodging tax funds must provide estimates of how any funds received are projected to increase the number of people traveling for business or pleasure. Subsequent to their receipt and use of funds, all recipients must submit a report stating the number of people who traveled for business or pleasure in relation to the spent funds.

The Lodging Tax Guidelines explain who can use lodging tax revenues, what such revenues may be used for, the information required from applicants, how recipients will be selected, and the statutory reporting requirements for lodging tax revenues.

Each organization receiving funding will be required to submit appropriate receipts and documentation to receive reimbursement of any approved lodging tax funds. Also, each organization is required to submit a report stating how the funds were spent and describing their impact.
