Marion's Hotel/Motel Grant Application Now Available

Post Date:04/03/2017 10:26 AM

The City of Marion is now accepting grant applications from any exempt/non-profit organization or agency of local government for a project that increases tourism within Marion. The funding source for these grants is the City’s share of taxes collected on overnight stays at hotels and motels within the city. Approximately $152,500 is expected to be available for the competitive grant program in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

City staff, City Council representatives, and Council-appointed citizens will review applications, determine recommended funding allocations, and make a recommendation to the Council for use of the funds. Projects that increase tourism and result in more overnight hotel stays in Marion shall be given priority.

Applications will be accepted online through the City of Marion website from April 3 through May 12, 2017. Award allocations are expected during the June 22 City Council meeting.

Questions about the Hotel/Motel Grant program should be directed to Rachel Bolender.
