Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations and government agencies for projects to enhance and support tourism in Enumclaw. Funding is intended for projects that increase the number of overnight stays in the city from visitors coming from more than 50 miles away. Eligible expenses include marketing, promotional, and operational expenses. Projects during the off and/or shoulder season are encouraged.

Components of “tourism promotion” are described in RCW 67.28 as follows: 

  1. Tourism means economic activity resulting from tourists, which may include sales of overnight lodging, meals, tours, gifts, or souvenirs. 
  2. Tourism promotion means activities, operations, and expenditures designed to increase  tourism, including but not limited to advertising, publicizing, or otherwise distributing information for the purpose of attracting and welcoming tourists; developing strategies to expand tourism; operating tourism promotion agencies; and funding marketing of special  event/project/programs and festivals designated to attract tourists.  
  3. Tourism‐related facility means real or tangible personal property with a usable life of three or more  years,  or  constructed  with  volunteer  labor  that  is:  (a)(i)  Owned  by  a  public  entity;  (ii) owned  by  a  nonprofit  organization  described  under  section  501(c)(3)  of  the  federal  internal revenue code of 1986, as amended; or (iii) owned by a nonprofit organization described under section  501(c)(6)  of  the  federal  internal  revenue  code  of  1986,  as  amended,  a  business organization, destination marketing organization, main street organization, lodging association, or chamber of commerce and (b) used to support tourism, performing arts, or to accommodate tourist activities.

In the review of applications,  the  LTAC will recommend preference to those proposals which  (1)  demonstrate the opportunity to increase overnight lodging, (2) increase tourism in Enumclaw, and (3) demonstrate ability towards event/project/program self‐sustainability.
