Budget Process

Requests for outside agency funding are normally made during the budget process. Included in the Request for Funding packet is an informational sheet highlighting the steps utilized for outside agency requests. It includes the method for submitting a request and the process after council considers the request.

Request for Funding

The request for funding application (PDF) should clearly state the amount of support needed for each year of the biennial budget on the application (example: $2,000 in the year 2023 and $2,000 for the year 2024). All requests for funding will be evaluated according to the availability of funds. Requests that meet the criteria for tourism funds will then be prioritized according to its benefit to citizens of Longview most directly, it’s meeting the human needs of the people as a whole, and its promotion of Longview.

Successful applicants will be notified in writing if they are selected to receive tourism funds.
