Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $3,000 to $20,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations, local and tribal governments, and universities and colleges for projects that conserve and develop the State's cultural resources. Interested applicants are required to preregister prior to applying. Priority will be given to projects that align with the interpretation, development, and preservation of threatened heritage resources as well as those that have statewide importance.

Additional Priorities:

  • Projects with a well-prioritized, clearly explained work plan with an appropriate level of detail and realistic cost estimates.
  • Projects that document, preserve, or interpret the history of voices previously marginalized or excluded. For example, this may include ethnicities, races, genders, classes, etc.
  • Geographic diversity.
  • Project readiness, including matching dollar share in-hand

Definitions:

  • Heritage is the array of significant things, thoughts, and activities associated with the human experience in Oregon.
  • Oregon's heritage resources include artifacts and other manifestations of material culture, documents, publications, photographs and films, prehistoric and historic sites, historic buildings and other structures, cultural landscapes, heritage celebrations, festivals and fairs, and songs, stories, and recordings associated with the human experience in Oregon.
