Grants to Oregon nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, institutions of higher education, and local government agencies in eligible areas for assistance during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support local cultural nonprofits and community venues that have canceled or postponed public programming due to the health guidelines related to the pandemic. Eligible applicants are located in Polk County.

The Cultural Trust defines culture as encompassing the arts, heritage, humanities, history, and preservation. Since 2001 the Cultural Trust has supported culture statewide through nonprofit cultural organizations, County and Tribal Coalitions, and statewide partners. Nonprofit cultural organizations will be prioritized for CRFCS funding.

Nonexclusive examples of eligible expenditures include, but are not limited to, payment expenses associated with the provision of economic support in connection with the COVID-19 public health emergency, such as:

  • Reimbursement of the costs of business interruption caused by required closures and/or reduced operations (excluding PPP or other federal funds); rent, lease or mortgage/loan payments for venue facilities; and operating costs (insurance, utilities, and personnel).
  • Reimbursement of costs associated with venue reopening, including alterations to facilities to meet reopening guidelines, extra cleaning costs or supplies and the purchase of employee personal protective equipment (PPE);
  • Reimbursement of costs associated with transitioning services to alternative means or methods (i.e. online services or outdoor or limited attendance performances); and
  • Durable goods or services acquired during the covered period that were previously unbudgeted and a necessary expense incurred due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
