The Washington County Visitors Association awards grants to eligible organizations whose projects will attract visitors to Tualatin Valley who will stay overnight in lodging facilities throughout Washington County. The following are the types of grants available.
Capital Project Tourism Development Grant Program
The 2020 Cycle is Now Closed
The Washington County Visitors Association’s Tourism Capital Project Grant Program is a closed-cycle program. Applicants must be a government entity or 501(c) non-profit organization. Eligible projects include development or redevelopment of a tourism-related product. Applicants are only allowed one grant award every two years.
If you have any questions regarding our capital grant program, please email or call Ariel Kanable at 503-644-5555.
Sports Fund Grant
The purpose of the Sports Fund is primarily to assist and secure new events/tournaments that attract participants and spectators who will stay in Washington County lodging facilities and generate hotel/motel room tax for the county. Priority consideration for funding will be for those first-year non-profit events/tournaments that successfully garner support from multiple community partners and sponsors and that demonstrate the ability and determination to sustain the event on an annual basis without the aid of future grants from the WCVA.
If you have any questions regarding the sports grant program, please email or call Carolyn McCormick at 503-644-5555.
