Jefferson County Room Tax
Jefferson County Room Tax
The Jefferson County Hotel Tax Committee has two sources of grant funds that can be used by county tourism-related nonprofit organizations for tourism development and marketing purposes. These funds can be applied for at anytime using the appropriate application below. Grants are dependent upon available funding at the time of the application.
Nonprofit tourism-related organizations may apply for either grant. Please review the purpose and guidelines of each grant to be sure you apply for the one that best suits your project and budget. Neither grant can be used for operating expenses.
The Development Grant is a matching grant award of up to $5,000 for construction, entertainment or event bookings, design or engineering work, and marketing and advertising beyond a 75-mile radius of Jefferson County.
The Marketing Grant is a 25% matching grant of up to $2,000 for marketing purposes such as advertising with media that will reach non-County residents, including television, radio, newsprint, billboards, magazines, and event brochures. The grant can also be applied to the development or enhancement of a website.
