TAPP runs an annual grant cycle in the fall. Grants are awarded for events and marketing projects that meet the criteria in our rubric below.
Ineligible event dates: The goal of the TAPP grant program is to fund events that will increase lodging revenues during non-peak visitation times, so we do not fund grant projects that have event dates between July 1 and Aug. 14.
Application due date: Grant applications are due on Nov. 3, 2023 at 5 p.m. Please send to TAPP marketing director Andrew Sandstrom. The rubric and more application instructions are below.
Awards announced: Awards will be announced on Nov. 17, 2023. Applicants will be notified via email.
