BEAUFORT, S.C. (Oct. 12, 2022) – City Council approved the awarding of $321,110 in ATAX grants to 13 non-profit local organizations at its Oct. 11 Regular Meeting. This was a significant increase over last year’s amount of $182,135 to seven organizations, thanks to greater revenue generated by the State Accommodations Tax.
Council modified the recommendations of the Tourism Development Advisory Committee (TDAC), which considers applications annually.
The grants are generated by the State Accommodations Tax (ATAX) revenue, and state law governs the distribution and use of the monies. A certain amount of these revenues is allocated for the grant process to non-profit groups focused on the promotion, marketing, and advertising of tourism. TDAC meets once a year to review, discuss and score applicant presentations for these grants.
The organizations and amounts awarded:
ATAX grants are awarded as reimbursements for expenses incurred by the organization. The organizations have two years from the date of the award to submit final reports for reimbursement.
