Grants of up to $2,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to strengthen the local tourism industry and enhance the quality of life for residents. Funding is intended to support a range of activities and programs, including special events, tourism promotion and tourism-related facilities, beautification of public spaces, and enhancing the downtown districts. Eligible projects and events enhance visitor appeal and encourage overnight stays in the City of Enterprise.

The goal of the grant programs is to help applicants undertake activities that would not be considered without special funding.  The “CETRA” program is designed to assist in establishing activities and events which because of their own merit, can eventually grow and succeed without financial assistance from this program. Grants are made in the area of:

  • Beautification of public property (i.e.: benches, bike racks, signage, planters, plantings, event equipment, etc.)
  • Enhancement of Enterprise’s Historic Downtown  (i.e.: signage, marketing)
  • Special Events
  • Tourism Promotion & Tourism Related Facilities
  • Other projects that will enhance Enterprise.


The City of Enterprise is interested in funding organizations that demonstrate they have planned their projects with respect to the community’s overall needs. Grant applications should keep in mind that priority is given to projects that: 

  • Generate overnight stays in Enterprise
  • Encourage support of Enterprise business, restaurants and attractions
  • Attract positive coverage in local, regional and national media
  • Reach a broad segment of the community
  • Request seed money for innovative programs related to the aforementioned criteria
  • Seek multiple sources of support rather than rely on the City of Enterprise as a single funding source
  • Yield benefits to the community for the resources invested
  • Promote cooperation among event organizers to reduce costs
  • Enhance or improve the community.
