Grant applications for projects/events promoting City of Marinette tourism must be postmarked by February 28th /September 30th or submitted at the City Hall Mayor’s Office by February 27th/ September 29th to be considered for review by the City of Marinette Room Tax Commission. Nonprofit organizations or groups partnered with nonprofits are eligible for the Room Tax Grants. The Room Tax Commission is responsible for determining appropriate expenditures for the development and promotion of tourism in the City of Marinette. An eligible event/project may be a new event, a one-time event, or an existing event/project. Decisions of the Commission will be based on the likelihood of visitors from out of town staying overnight in lodging facilities as a result of the event/project. The overnight stays will generate additional room tax funds to support grants in the future. Information and application is available at the City website under Residents/Forms,Lic& Permits/Room Tax Grant
