Forest County Room Tax

Forest County Room Tax

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

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 Forest County.

Examples of previous grant usage:

  • PA Firefly Festival
  • Tionesta Visitors Center
  • Marienville Area Civic Association (MACA)
  • Tionesta Community Association (TCA)
  • Forest County TV commercials, rack cards, and other marketing

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