The City of Mukilteo is inviting local non-profits and government agencies to apply for a 2021 Lodging Tax Grant. The deadline to apply online is August 25, 2020 and no late applications will be accepted after that date. We will accept only online applications, not paper.
Funds for these grants flow to the City from a 2% hotel/motel tax assessed on hotels/motels within the City. RCW 67.28.1816 restricts use of the tax to fund tourism promotion, and acquisitions, operations and/or maintenance of tourism facilities within the City. The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) will review the applications on Tuesday, September 1 beginning at 4:00pm. Committee members listen to applicant presentations and recommend use of the funds to the City Council. These recommendations will be presented to the full Council on September 21, 2020.
For grant funding year 2020, the City Council approved $262,200 in lodging tax grants to the Mukilteo Chamber of Commerce, Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival Association, and Rosehill Community Center Staffing.
