Valley organizations that provide services for tourists or promote tourism can now apply to receive funding for 2018 through the city of Snoqualmie Lodging Tax Advisory Committee.

Every year the committee allocates money received through the city hotel and motel sales tax. The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee reviews applicants and allocates the tax funds back into those organizations to promote economic development and growth in tourism initiatives.

A total amount of $63,638 was allocated to local organizations for 2017. Some of the recipients included The Northwest Railway Museum, Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Visitor Information Center, and the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum.

Applications are available at and are due at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11. The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee will make their recommendations to Snoqualmie city council for final approval.
