Grant applications are now open for activities that will take place in 2022.  Funding is granted for the marketing or operations of special events, programs, and activities designed to bring visitors to Battle Ground.  Previous grants included funding for wayfinding signs, marketing materials, and event operations. 

Those interested in receiving grant funds should submit an application summarizing the activity or event, how it supports tourism, and a proposed budget indicating how lodging tax dollars will be used.  Applications are due by Tue., Aug. 31 at 5 p.m.

The estimated amount of grant funding for 2022 is $55,000. The city’s Lodging Tax Advisory Committee will review proposals and forward recommendations to the Battle Ground City Council for final determination of awards in November of this year. Grant awards are distributed on a reimbursement basis.
