Grant Programs

The City of Seaside Visitors Bureau administers two grant programs.

Annual Tourism Grant Program. The City of Seaside Visitors Bureau invites tourism-project funding requests from businesses and organizations that produce programs or events designed to increase overnight visits to the area, promote tourist attractions in the region or develop programs targeted to visitors especially in the shoulder and winter months. For the 2021-2022 fiscal year, it is expected that a total of $50,000 will be awarded for tourism development in Seaside. These funds are generated from transient room taxes (TRT) collected from overnight lodging facilities in Seaside. The Visitors Bureau is the fiscal administrator of these funds on behalf of the city with the assistance of the Tourism Advisory Committee. The funding cycle and application process opened for the 2020-2021 fiscal year on January 25 and the deadline is May 7.

2020 Tourism Relief Program. The City of Seaside approved up to $250,000 in emergency grant funding in order to help local businesses overcome the temporary loss of revenue associated with COVID-19 travel restrictions. Small businesses and nonprofits that comprise the thriving tourism industry in Seaside could apply for up to $4,000 each in grants. Emergency grants were used to keep employees on payroll, pay for sick leave, or pay business obligations, including debts, rent and mortgage payments.
