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.

  • Encourage support of Enterprise business, restaurants and attractions
  • Attract positive coverage in local, regional and national media

  • Request seed money for innovative programs related to the aforementioned criteria
