How we’re funded
The Richmond Region includes the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico and New Kent as well as the city of Richmond, the city of Colonial Heights and town of Ashland. Richmond Region Tourism's primary funding comes from a tax (transient lodging tax) that hotel guests pay on lodging. Richmond Region Tourism receives a portion of the transient lodging tax. We are also partially funded by the Greater Richmond Convention Center Authority (GRCCA), ChamberRVA, and from local partners and sponsors.
