Port Tourism Fund

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Port Tourism Grant.  The Port’s 2017 Annual Tourism Budget is $20,000 (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31) to support tourism events that attract out-of-county visitors to the Walla Walla Valley. Funding requests cannot exceed 10% of the Port’s annual tourism budget. 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:
