Accommodations Tax (ATAX) Grants

(843) 918-1135


The City of Myrtle Beach receives 40+ applicants each year vying for a chance to receive a portion of the city's accommodations tax funds.  The total funding awarded each year averages about $750,000 to $800,000.   When the initial application and review process has been completed, the city's Accommodations Tax Advisory Committee votes on what recommendations to pass along to Myrtle Beach City Council.  Then, during a workshop in 2024, Councilmembers hear from applicants and select the final grant recipients, along with the amounts each recipient receives.  Questions?  Call the Financial Management & Reporting Department at 843-918-1099.
