The city of New Braunfels is now accepting program funding applications from organizations that seek to promote arts or heritage events and projects within New Braunfels.

Each year, the city receives applications from organizations seeking a portion of the hotel and motel tax funds paid by visitors to the city. Such organizations must hold a 501(c)3 designation by the Internal Revenue Service.


“A portion of the hotel/motel tax that our overnight visitors pay goes toward these organizations that not only enrich our community, but also help to continue to draw-in overnight visitors to New Braunfels’ local hotels,” City Secretary Patrick Aten said in a press release.

Applications and guidelines are available in the city secretary’s office at 550 Landa St., New Braunfels, and online at www.nbtexas.org/citysecretaryforms. Applications are due no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 3.
