Pierce County Lodging Tax (LTAC) and Tourism Promotion Area (TPA) grants are funded through taxes and fees paid on overnight stays. Grants are designed to invest in organizations and activities that will drive an increase in lodging room nights throughout Pierce County.
Both grants require applicants to be nonprofit entities and to have an established focus on tourism within their organization’s mission. Funding categories include, but are not limited to, individual leisure marketing, event marketing and operations, event development, sports event marketing and development, conventions and meetings marketing, and asset/product development.
