Tooele County Tourism Grant Tax

The primary purpose of the Tourism Tax Grant process is to provide financial support for the promotion of recreation, tourism, film production, and conventions. It is also intended to provide financial support for the maintenance and operations of convention meeting rooms, exhibit halls, visitor information centers, museums, sports and recreation facilities, and other related facilities. 

The County will be hosting four grant-writing workshops for those interested in learning more about the process.


We will explain the grant application process and best practices at each of the four workshops.  The workshops will be held at the Commission Conference Room, 47 South Main, Room 300. 

To be eligible for consideration, grant applications must be received no later than 5:00 PM Friday, January 12, 2018.  In all cases, please refer to the online resources noted above for additional details, including where submissions should be sent.

***There are no exceptions to the deadline***
