The Tourism Co. developed the CTA Grant with funds sourced from lodging taxes paid by visitors when spending the night in Hamilton County; these taxes are not paid by Hamilton County taxpayers. It was designed to advance a wide range of projects that increase brand awareness, provide opportunities for collaboration and industry growth, and align with the Tourism Co.’s mission of promoting and developing visitor experiences that enhance the economic and social prosperity of Hamilton County.
