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:

  • Elk Country Arts Festival
  • Elk County TV commercials, rack cards, and other marketing
  • Tri-County Rails to Trails Association, Clarion-Little Toby Rail Trail map creation
  • Elk Viewing Guide

In addition to distributing grants, the Elk County Room Tax Committee purchases ads in the annual Pennsylvania “Happy Traveler” State Visitors Guide.
