The 2024 grant application period has closed.
Application forms for the 2025 season will be posted in June 2024.
The Town of Friday Harbor provides grant funding for the promotion of Friday Harbor events and activities that encourage, welcome, and entertain tourists and visitors. The grants are funded through local and state Hotel Motel Excise Tax collected on lodging accommodations within the town of Friday Harbor (hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, inns, and vacation rentals).
The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) has been established under FHMC 2.66 to review applications for funding from lodging taxes collected by the Town and make recommendations to the Town Council on those applications and related lodging tax issues. The committee is comprised of seven members to include two Town Council members, two members representing lodging establishments, and three at large which may include representatives of agencies or activities eligible to receive lodging tax funding. The Town Council holds the option to appoint an eighth member at large to act as an alternate. Members are appointed by the Mayor with concurrence from the Council. Members are appointed to three year terms.
Hoteliers, prospective recipients of funds, and community members interested in being considered for future vacancies on the LTAC are asked to submit a Letter of Interest or Committee Member Application.
