Port Tourism Fund

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Port Tourism Grant.  The Port’s 2020 Annual Tourism Budget is approximately $30,000 (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31) to support tourism events that attract out-of-county visitors to the Walla Walla Valley. The maximum tourism funding request is $2,000.  Port tourism funds can only be used for advertising, publicizing, or otherwise distributing information for the purpose of attracting visitors to Walla Walla County.  Port funds cannot be used to underwrite general expenses associated with a tourism event.

The Port has a formal Port Tourism Application (PDF) which can be downloaded below:

To apply, complete the above 2020 Port Tourism Application. The Port accepts tourism funding applications throughout the year, however, it is always best to apply early in the year before the funding has been fully allocated.

Please Note: It's important you read the attached Port Tourism Policy. In your application you will need to confirm that you have read the policy and will comply with its requirements.
