Hotel-Motel Tourism Grant Program

The Newton Hotel-Motel Tourism Grant Program is a way for the City of Newton to fund numerous community projects, special events and initiatives through local hotel-motel tax, while also keeping the process and application the same for each request.

The program would continue providing support for projects but provide City Council with information prior to presentations/requests made at City Council meetings. The application process ensures that projects and events have some tourism related component, accountability, and leverage from other funding sources.
