The Capital Projects Advisory Committee (CAP Committee) is soliciting applications for projects that implement Tourism Master Plan (TMP) priorities and benefit communities located in eastern Placer County for the award of Placer County Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) funds.

The TMP was approved by the Placer County Board of Supervisors in 2015 and provides a road map for TOT investment in eastern Placer County. The TMP identifies several focus areas to support the tourism economy of eastern Placer County and positions the region to achieve the vision of the plan through the Tier 1 and Tier 2 priorities.

Grant Priorities
The Tourism Master Plan Grants Program focuses on visitor-serving capital projects identified in three focus areas of the TMP including Visitor Activities and Facilities, Transportation and Visitor Information2. Example projects include:
• Trails
• Wayfinding and interpretive signage
• Bus shelters
• Sidewalks and pedestrian infrastructure
• Cultural facilities such as museums, interpretive centers, and public art

The CAP Committee, co-chaired by Placer County and the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, includes representatives of resorts, small business, residents, and visitors.
