Funding Amount: Determined per Project

Overview

The County of Northampton will competitively award grants to be funded from revenues collected from the Northampton County Hotel Tax.  The Hotel Tax funds are provided for under Northampton County Resolution No. 440 of 2005, as authorized by P.L. 307 of 2000 and amended by Act 12 of 2005, by imposing a Hotel Room Rental Tax of 4% on hotel guests to be used for tourism and community development initiatives.

Eligibility

Eligible Projects should promote community development and/or enhance tourism within Northampton County.  Applicants must fall within one of the categories identified below:
 Federally registered non-profit entity (501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4))
 Municipal entity located within Northampton County
 
In addition, events and activities must occur in Northampton County. These funds are intended to support events or project expenses such as promotional costs and capital improvements. Applicants relying on these funds as a general source of annual operating funds, such as requests to support core staffing costs and other administrative expenses usually expected to be covered by the organization, will be considered less competitive.
 
All grants will be awarded based on a review process. Projects that can most effectively address some or all of the following will receive preference:
 • The project will increase the number of visitors to the County and promotes visitation to sites within the County that promote our unique cultural and/or historic value;
 • The project will measurably increase the number of visitors to Northampton County and has a system of measurement in place to track the number of visitors;  
 • The project has a clear budget that leverages other funding and indicates need;
 • The project measurably improves public health and/or wellness; and
 • The project identifies a collaborative partnership with other Northampton County entities.

Terms

These funds are intended to support non-recurring costs such as event or project expenses, promotional costs, upgrades, and expansions.  Applicants relying on these funds as a general source of annual operating funds such as requests to support core staffing costs and other administrative expenses usually expected to be covered by the organization, will be considered less competitive.
