Applying for lodging tax grants for tourism-related special projects and festivals is in its second year of the electronic process. Paper copies are no longer accepted.

To facilitate the process, there will be grant application training provided in both Upper and Lower County.

The following two trainings are scheduled, one in Upper County and one in Lower County:

The trainings are hosted by the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce.  The trainings are not required, but highly encouraged, as they should help the applicants with  questions they have regarding the application process.
