Annually, the City of Lakewood solicits project proposals that support and encourage tourism and cultural activities in Lakewood, Washington. The source of monies from which projects will be funded is the city’s share of taxes collected on overnight stays at hotels and motels within the City of Lakewood.

The next application process for 2019 Lodging Tax Grant Allocations is scheduled for the beginning of August 2018 and typically closes after three weeks. The application packet will provide information regarding eligible uses of motel/hotel tax revenues and the process for proposal submission.
