HOT Grant Funding Applications Now Being Accepted

The City of Dripping Springs is accepting applications for local Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) grant funds. Hotel Occupancy Tax is collected from hotels and other lodging facilities. Under state law, these funds may only be used to promote tourism and the convention and hotel industry.

Convention and Visitor Centers
Convention Registration

Historical Restoration and Preservation 
Sporting Events
Transportation Systems for Tourists 
Signage Directing Tourists to Sights and Attractions
