Loudoun County’s annual Tourism Grant process is underway with the posting of the Fiscal Year 2019 (FY 2019) grant application at www.loudoun.gov/TourismGrant. The grant program is designed to support local tourism initiatives and events that drive tourists to Loudoun County.

Funding from the program is to be spent solely on tourism or qualifying tourism promotions consistent with state code and the Board of Supervisors’ Restricted Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) funding policy. 

For FY 2019, which begins July 1, 2018, the Board has prioritized tourism-based funding opportunities that support:
  • Agriculture-based businesses, such as those related to craft beverages, agritourism, lodging, artisans and the equine industry; 
  • Special events that attract a significant number of people from other jurisdictions and regions; or 
  • Cultural or outdoor recreational opportunities that bring visitors to the county.
Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Monday, April 2, 2018. The Board of Supervisors is expected to allocate funding at a business meeting in May, based on staff recommendations. 

Any organization interested in submitting a request for funds must complete the Restricted TOT Fund Tourism Grant Program application online. Additional information about the process, as well as a link to the online application form, may be found at www.loudoun.gov/TourismGrant.  

Questions about the process may be directed to the Grants Coordinator Shalom Black in the Department of Management and Budget by email or by phone at 703-737-8186.
