Georgetown County will accept applications for accommodations tax grants beginning on Monday, Aug. 15. The application period will run through Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. Grants are available for projects and events occurring in the 2023 calendar year. 

Proceeds from the county’s share of the state tax on hotel rooms and other vacation rentals – also known as A-tax – are distributed to organizations through grants for eligible tourism-related events and activities. Recommendations on grant awards are made by an advisory committee comprised of representatives from the county’s tourism industry. County Council will make final award determinations in December. 

The grant program is administered by the Georgetown County Finance Department in accordance with program guidelines. For more information about accommodations tax grants, visit Potential applicants may also contact Glenda Long in the Finance Department at or (843) 545-3251 for more information.
