Grants of up to $2,500 to Oregon nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, institutions of higher education, and local government agencies in eligible areas for arts, heritage, and humanities activities and projects. Priority will be given to projects that encourage youth participation in these areas. Eligible applicants are located in Polk County.

The mission of the Polk County Cultural Coalition (PCCC) is to encourage projects and activities in the arts, heritage, and humanities that relate to the priorities of the PCCC:

  • Protect existing cultural assets 
  • Focus on introducing young people to the arts, culture heritage, and history
  • Help overcome barriers to participation in cultural events and activities

Projects must address one or more of the priorities listed and collaboration with other agencies is encouraged. Due to continued restrictions, these proposals can be for projects that are provided live, virtual, or a combination of the two.

Awards range from $200 to $2500.

Term of Contract:

- Projects must be completed within one year and may not begin until grant funds are received.

- If the project is not complete by the end of the calendar-year grant cycle, a request for an extension, indicating reasons for the extension, must be sent to the Polk County Cultural Coalition.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

PCCC provides funding for projects submitted by non-profit organizations which meet the mission statement.

Applications will be accepted only for cultural projects and activities which involve residents of Polk County. Applicants must be IRS-designated 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations or be working with one. If you are not an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, you must partner with one that is willing to handle the grant funds for you, i.e., a fiscal agent. Note that schools and cities, while non-profit, are not 501(c)(3) organizations and will require a fiscal agent to participate. Individuals who apply must have an IRS-qualified fiscal agent/partner.
