All receipts of HOT funds will be required to submit a post-event form, report and analysis within sixty (60) days after an event or program cycle, which documents the expenditure of the HOT funds and verifies the direct promotion of Seabrook tourism and the hotel industry. Recipients who do not submit post-event information may not be eligible for future funding.
Application Overview and Process
The City of Seabrook accepts applications from non-profits, groups and businesses whose programs or events fit into one or more of the listed categories. All applicants applying for funding must submit an official application by April 15, 2018 to be considered for funds for the 2018-2019 Fiscal Year (October 2018 – September 2019).
Applications will be reviewed by a committee composed of city staff who give an extensive review of the event’s application to City Council during a regular or special meeting held in March. Applicants will be notified prior to the meeting and are encouraged to attend and give feedback to Council.
City Council will make a decision on the applicant’s request and supplemental documentation provided. If denied funding, applicants may appeal the decision, in writing within sixty (60) days of Council’s decision. Council may revoke or change the amount allocated at anytime until the FY2018/2019 Budget is adopted. The Budget process usually takes place between June and August each year.
Supplemental information and documentation is required in addition to the application form. Please review and complete entire application packet prior to application submittal.
