Estimated Size of Grant:

Funding is limited. Last year’s local grant cycle supported 16 Umatilla County arts and culture projects for a total of $14,385. If your project is a large one you will need to secure additional funding sources. If your project is small you may request full funding, though the Umatilla County Cultural Coalition may only be able to partially fund your request.

Term of Contract:

Grant funding must be expended March 1, 2020 - November 1, 2020.

Funds for multi-year projects may be requested, with an application required each year. UCCC does not commit to multiple-year funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are available to Umatilla County non-profits, agencies and organizations.

There are certain items, such as consumable office supplies and cash awards, that are not normally covered by grant funds.

A special note about school busing expenditures: Busing costs for most educational school trips qualify for federal subsidies. Applicants should speak to their school administrator to see if their trip qualifies for this subsidy. If it does, they should indicate this on their budget and only request the amount that will not be subsidized.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be received no later than 3:00 pm on Friday, January 24, 2020. Applicants should drop off or mail 2 copies of their proposal to Umatilla County Cultural Coalition. Projects should be planned and ready to execute.

UCCC expects organizations to have many funding sources. You must identify exactly how and where UCCC funds will be used in comparison to other funds.
