The Tourism Promotion Area (TPA) program is funded through a special fee on lodging provided by hotels with 40 rooms or more throughout Pierce County. Funds are used to promote tourism and increase overnight stays at lodging facilities.
TPA board members are recommended by the Pierce County Lodging Association, appointed by the Pierce County Executive, and confirmed by the Pierce County Council.
Applicants must schedule a one-on-one application workshop with the Pierce County Economic Development Department. Please contact Mike Gommi at 253-798-6914 or [email protected] to schedule an appointment.
