Port Tourism Fund

Thank you for your interest in applying for a Port Tourism Grant.  The Port’s 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 will accept tourism funding applications throughout the year; however, it is always best to apply early before the Port tourism funds are fully allocated.
