Goshen County Lodging Tax Board
The Goshen County Tourism Promotion Joint Powers Board [a.k.a. Goshen County Lodging Tax Board], is committed to providing promotion of travel and tourism throughout Goshen County, facilitating effective marketing programs in order to enhance and improve destination tourism, and earmarks funds for a Tourism Sponsorship Program.
The Tourism Sponsorship Program provides grants to event organizers offering local, regional, and national public relations funding for events that in turn attract visitors and residents to Goshen County. To date, the Goshen County Lodging Tax Board has awarded grants, approximately $321,000.00.
Tourism Sponsorship Program
Entities eligible to apply for grants must have the capability of attracting visitors to Goshen County and must have projects that will promote tourism within Goshen County.
The goals of the grant program are to attract more visitors to Goshen County, provide meaningful visitor resident interaction and positive benefits, support events that offer local, regional, and national public relations value, encourage collaboration between event producers, and promote self-sufficiency of the event.
How the Grant Program Works
The applicant will submit a completed application and provide cost estimates. Applicants have the option to present their project(s) to the Grant Committee. The Grant Program will reimburse funds based on the submittal of paid receipts and a Final Report of the project within sixty days of event completion. All invoices must be marked paid.
Applications will be reviewed and awards are made at the next Lodging Tax Board Meeting. Applications and supporting materials must be received (not postmarked) as of noon on the first Tuesday of the following months:
