nighttime in Uptown MarionAbout the Grant Program

Each year the City collects a seven percent room tax on overnight stays at hotels and motels in the community. The funds are then redistributed through the Hotel/Motel Grant Program which awards exempt or non-profit organizations or agencies of a local government that work to increase tourism in Marion. 

A committee consisting of City staff, City Council representatives, and Council-appointed citizens review the applications, determine recommended funding allocations, and make a recommendation to the council for use of the funds.

If you are a qualified applicant, please submit the application and required documentation by May 11, 2018.
