Forest County Room Tax
Forest County Room Tax
The local portion of Forest County Room Tax funds (25% of the total revenues) are used to operate the Forest County Visitor Center, as well as support the Tionesta Community Association and the Marienville Area Civic Association every year in the amount of $1,000 each to promote their events. Other Forest County organizations/events are also invited to apply for grants of up to $500 for marketing of events.
Room Tax funds must be used to promote attractions or events that will “put heads in beds” in Forest County through out-of-area advertising. The advertising method may be via Internet, print ads, posters, brochures and rack cards, radio, TV, billboards or other media. The Committee meets and reviews applications quarterly. Quarterly application deadlines are the first day of February, May, August and November.
Past projects of the Room Tax Committee include a Forest County Visitor Survey (in partnership with the Forest County IDC), GO Magazine ads in each issue promoting recreation in Forest County, PAGO membership dues for tourism related businesses, and support for the PA Wilds Planning Team.
