Workshops & Grants

Lodging Tax Grants

The City of Edmonds Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) provides recommendations on the use of City lodging tax revenue for the promotion of tourism in Edmonds. These recommendations, approved by City Council as part of the City of Edmonds annual budget, include two grant opportunities for nonprofit organizations that produce and present events and programs that attract visitors to Edmonds.

LTAC Grant: Nonprofits seeking funding assistance to attract visitors to Edmonds for any sort of program or event they present or produce may apply directly to the LTAC. Contact Cindi Cruz at cindi.cruz@edmondswa.gov .

Edmonds Arts Commission Tourism Promotion Award: Not-for-profit arts-related organizations seeking assistance for programs that promote cultural tourism may apply for grants up to $2,500 through the City of Edmonds Arts Commission Tourism Promotion Awards program. Contact the Arts Office at eac@edmondswa.gov .

 Applications for both grant programs will be available in March 2017 for events held in 2018. Application deadline is June 1, 2017.
