HOT Sponsorship Applications



HOT Event/Program Sponsorship Applications for the FY23 are closed. Please check back during the summer of 2024.

The City of Kemah is committed to providing our community with enriching cultural and entertainment projects and events. We welcome all applications from prospective applicants, but it is important to note that the funding process is competitive due to limited resources. In addition, there are strict requirements that govern the use of HOT funds under the Tax Code. These funds must be used to promote lodging accommodations and encourage overnight stays within Kemah. The application form outlines all the necessary requirements that must be met.
