Kittitas County, WA -
The county-wide consolidated lodging tax workgroup met Friday, November 19, 2021, to review 2022 grant applications for special events and projects. Funding for the grants comes from a special sales tax collected on overnight lodging facilities throughout the county. The tax is collected by Kittitas County and the cities of Roslyn, Cle Elum, and Ellensburg. Each entity contributes 13% of the collected funds for this annual grant process and appoints representatives to the workgroup that reviews the applications. Chairman Osiadacz stated, “This collaborative process is fundamental in ensuring we have voices representing all areas of Kittitas County. Tourism continues to be a driving force in our local economy.” Funds made available by each jurisdiction this year totaled $242,243.49. The workgroup recommended awards totaling $242,239.75.
As part of the review process, the workgroup heard from each applicant recommended for funding and then deliberated on the final awards. The final awards recommendations must now be approved by each participating jurisdiction’s legislative body before becoming official. The following applications were approved for funding for 2022:
