The Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) committee is pleased to announce the recipients of the Hotel Occupancy Tax grant awards. Over $10,000 was provided to fund 11 different upcoming projects within the City of Vinton during 2020.

Awardees include:

· ACT I/Palace Theatre - $1,000 for concession stand upgrades

· Benton County Historical Society - $1,000 for civil war re-enactment

· Vinton Baseball Corporation - $725 for an informational sign and Vinton map

We encourage any organization or group within Vinton that may be promoting tourism by hosting an event or developing a point of interest to attract people to visit our community to keep the HOT grant in the back of their mind. This grant application will continue to be available and likely accepting applications in the fall of each year.
