Annual Grant Cycle – NTCA

Annual Grant Cycle


The Annual Grant Cycle is part of the TOT-TBID Dollars At Work Program. It is dedicated to strategically allocating Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) and North Lake Tahoe Tourism Business Improvement District (NLT-TBID) assessment funds to programs and projects to achieve community vitality, economic health, and environmental sustainability to benefit residents, businesses, and visitors in the North Lake Tahoe region.

Through the 2024 Annual Grant Cycle, the NTCA Board of Directors recommended investment of $4.3 million in TOT-TBID Dollars At Work funding that will unlock matching funds of over $6.3 million, bringing the total investment in North Lake Tahoe to over $10 million. The projects recommended to the Placer County Board of Supervisors for TOT funding and approved by the NTCA Board to receive direct investment of TBID funding include specific workforce housing projects, trails and recreation improvements, litter clean-up, accessibility, and business incubator efforts.

The 2024-2025 Annual Grant Cycle will open in August, 2024. Learn more about the Annual Grant cycle priority areas, timelines and the application process below.
