General Grant Information

  • Grant funding is made available through Discover Kalispell’s annual budget. Depending on the grant application submitted, funding is either provided from the Lodging Facility Use Tax (Bed Tax) portion of the budget or the Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) budget. Both are collected from occupied room nights at Kalispell hotels.
  • There is no set number of grants that may be awarded in any fiscal year. However, the total dollar amount of grant funds awarded may not exceed the total amount of funds allocated by the Board of Directors for the current fiscal year.
  • The Board of Directors may, at its own discretion, consider funding applications in the current or subsequent fiscal year depending on grant fund availability.
