Advertising Program Grants
The County of Sonoma Advertising and Promotions Program utilizes a portion of the Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) to encourage tourism, economic development and community engagement through a variety of grant award and funding avenues.
The Program provides various grants to community non-profits for advertising and promoting events and the county as a visitor destination with the goal if advancing economic growth through tourism. Additionally the program provides grants to promote agricultural promotion as well as address impacts on safety due to tourism. The Program also provides funding to the Regional Parks Department as well as the Economic Development Department and a number of other county department activities, all with the focus of encouraging tourism and awareness of our county.
