Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,500 to Oregon nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, schools, and local government agencies in eligible locations 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 young people; help them to experience a variety of cultural venues
  • 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.


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

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.
