Canal Winchester Occupancy Tax Grant


The city of Canal Winchester is accepting applications for its 2018 Transient Occupancy Tax Grant program. The grant program is open to non-profits or private organizations located within the city of Canal Winchester to help fund projects that will enhance Canal Winchester for residents and/or visitors to the community. Grants are funded with the hotel/motel tax revenue collected by the city of Canal Winchester.

Canal Winchester has levied a 6 percent transient occupancy tax that is imposed when lodging is furnished to transient guests by a hotel, motel or similar business. One half of this tax is contributed to Destination: Canal Winchester, the designated visitors and convention bureau for Canal Winchester. The second half of the tax is designated by city council to fund the annual Bed Tax Grant Program.

Grant applications will be competitively reviewed and awards will be made to those projects meeting all requirements and the intent of the program. Grant applications are available on the city’s website and at the city of Canal Winchester’s Municipal Building, 36 S. High St., Canal Winchester, OH 43110. Completed applications must be submitted in person or by mail to the attention of the finance director at the above address no later than Nov. 30, 2017. City council will make award determinations in December. Award checks will be drawn in early 2018 and all awards must be used within the 2018 calendar year. For information contact Amanda Jackson, finance director, at 614-837-6937 or
