Room Tax Grant Application
Room tax funds are received from the communities of Minocqua, Arbor Vitae, and Woodruff. The grants are reviewed by the Let's Minocqua Board of Directors ("board").
The board is comprised of lodging members of the communities and board members from Let's Minocqua Visitors Bureau + Chamber of Commerce. The room tax grants will be distributed on an annual basis.
Funding is devoted to community groups and organizations for tourism development and promotion in the Minocqua area. The Board will consider applications from non-profit groups and organizations that provide marketing and focus on bringing people to the Minocqua area along with developing the destination. The Board will also consider applications from non-profit groups and organizations that offer activities or events that will encourage people to stay longer. If funds are granted, the Let's Minocqua logo will need to be present at events and all development projects as the grantor.
The Board will not provide room tax funds for an organization's operating expenses, volunteer pay, or stipends.
All applications must be submitted to Let's Minocqua Visitors Bureau + Chamber of Commerce by 5 pm the last Friday in January. Grantees will be notified on the last Friday in February.
The board will review the applications and request any missing information - which would be due two days prior to the review meeting.
Funds granted are for the Fiscal Year they are approved. You will need to resubmit the application if you intend on requesting monies in subsequent years.
