The total amount of funds available to award in 2019 is $100,000. State law allows cities to distribute lodging tax revenues specifically for events which promote tourism in the city.

Guidelines for grant eligible projects can be found on the City of Woodinville’s homepage under news: http://www.ci.woodinville.wa.us/News/NewsItems.asp and on the city’s tourism page: http://www.ci.woodinville.wa.us/Play/Tourism.asp.
