Klamath County has established a Tourism Grant Program to assist local event planners in promoting tourism in Klamath County. Tourism Grants are for regional promotion of events in Klamath County. The Board of Commissioners looks for projects that offer special or unique opportunities. Projects should identify a specific target market and offer a specific strategy for reaching this market. Funding for the Tourism Grant Program comes from the countywide transient room tax that is administered by the Klamath County Tax Collector.
Grant applications are reviewed and recommendations made by a seven-member review panel appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The review panel recommends applications and funding levels to the Board of Commissioners who will then make the final decision for awarding funds.
