Sponsorship and Funding Opportunities

Tourism Capital Investment Fund 

Enabling legislation in 2021 to increase the St. Joseph County Innkeepers Tax rate resulted in the creation of a Tourism Capital Investment Fund. Per the law, one percent of annual Innkeepers Tax collections are dedicated to this fund for the purpose of investing in projects that aim to enhance and expand tourism.
