Elk County Room Tax

 

Elk County Room Tax

The county room tax funds sustain regional tourism promotion agencies including the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors.

A portion of the Elk County room tax has been appropriated for a grant program specifically established to support Elk County’s tourism assets. The purpose of this grant program is to enhance the tourism experience, increase tourism visitation and overnight stays within Elk County. Awards are granted on the basis of merit as determined by the Elk County Room Tax Committee.

Grant funding is available for non-profit and not-for-profit organizations to incorporate into their marketing strategies for events and promotions that will generate overnight stays with travelers from outside of Elk County.

Examples of previous grant usage:

  • Tri-County Rails to Trails Association, Clarion-Little Toby Rail Trail map creation
  • Elk County Council on the Arts, Summer Concert Series promotion
  • Ridgway Heritage Council, Tasting in the Wilds promotion
  • Appalachian Education, Inc., (Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous), website redesign

In addition to distributing grants, the Elk County Room Tax Committee purchases ads in the annual Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Welcome and GO Magazines to promote the Elk County area. The Committee also purchases ads for each room tax paying lodging provider in the annual Welcome magazine.

The Elk Viewing Guide is a project of the Elk County Room Tax Committee. The guide provides visitors with Elk County information, the best elk viewing areas and places to stay.
