How We're Funded

Visit Corpus Christi is an internationally accredited 501c6 Destination Management Organization contracted by the city of Corpus Christi to promote travel and tourism. The Organization is managed by a 17-member Board of Directors with a mission of Strengthening the Community by Sharing Corpus Christi with the World.

VCC receives no public funds and has two primary funding sources that are paid for by visitors staying in overnight accommodations.

  • Per state statute, the city of Corpus Christi levies a 7% Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) on overnight visitors in hotels and short-term rentals of which VCC receives 44%.
  • Beginning August 1, 2022, hotels within the city limits with over 40 rooms created a Tourism Public Improvement District (TPID). The TPID is a 2% assessment on overnight stays of which VCC receives 100% for marketing and sales initiatives.

Visit Corpus Christi also has a 501c3 non-profit foundation. This foundation supports the local hospitality and tourism industry via sports development, workforce development initiatives and education programs, and providing funding to individuals and businesses during times of need through the Visit CC Cares program.
