Tourism Grant Application

The Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC) is seeking applications for funding, which is made possible through the collection of the Yates County Occupancy Tax.
Applications are due by August 23rd at 4 PM and are available by request, online or at the Yates County Chamber of Commerce at 2375 Route 14A in Penn Yan.
Once applications are received, the TAC will review the submissions and each organization will be contacted.  In the event of your organization being recommended you will be contacted to schedule a personal presentation for September with the committee. A notice of the grant will be sent following approval of the TAC and Yates County legislative budget adoption.
