Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) Funding Application Period Now Open


The City of Sealy is now accepting hotel occupancy tax (HOT) funding applications from those groups and businesses whose programs directly promote area tourism and the hotel and convention industry. Approved programs will need to fit into one or more statutorily required categories and put "heads in beds" in Sealy hotels.

All requests for funds are to be submitted in writing using the official application by Friday, June 4, 2021. The fillable PDF document follows:



Once the City's budget has been approved, the applicant will receive a Notification of Funding Decision as to whether or not the event or project has been funded and, if so, for what amount. Funded applicants will use this form to formally request the approved funding within the prescribed time period. Once the event has concluded or the project is completed, the applicant will be required to file a Post Event/Project Report Form within 60 days.
