What is the Lodging Excise Tax Fund?
Funding for this program comes from the Port Angeles Lodging Tax Fund which receives a percentage of hotel/motel taxes from lodging establishments inside the city limits. The City collects a tax on charges for overnight lodging. These funds are distributed by the Department of Revenue back to Port Angeles for the funding of tourism related capital facilities, non-event operations, and event marketing and operations. Event marketing and operations has a separate application process once the City Council has approved the budget allocation for events in 2020.
This application is for Tourism Related Capital Facilities and Non-Event Operations

- Tourism marketing;
