Grants of up to $3,000 to Oregon nonprofit arts, humanities, and heritage organizations in eligible locations for programs to benefit local residents. Funding is intended to assist organizations in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible applicants are located in Deschutes County.

The Deschutes Cultural Coalition is pleased to announce the availability of an additional distribution of funding for 2022 to arts and culture organizations in Deschutes County.  The funds are granted to DCC from the county for the purpose of regranting to those organizations who are rebuilding operation or program capacity lost during the pandemic.

While all proposals will be considered by the DCC Board, those organization applicants who previously received under $5,000 of COVID relief funding from the federal or state governments and who have operating budgets under $200,000 will be given priority.

Funding must support projects and activities that address one of the four priorities outlined within the Deschutes Cultural Plan:

  • Encourage greater awareness of local culture.
  • Ensure that a variety of cultural resources and programming are accessible to all residents
  • Provide cultural education in Deschutes County
  • Help new and established cultural organizations increase their capacity to fulfill their mission.
