Grants of up to $15,000 to Lincoln County, Oregon nonprofit organizations for local economic and community development initiatives. Projects must create economic opportunities and help develop quality communities within the County. Projects will be awarded funding on their individual merit.

The Board of Commissioners continues to focus on economic development and the County will seek to allocate two-thirds of the funds to economic development projects with a focus on job creation and/or retention and one-third to community development.

Consideration will be given to geographic distribution of the funds and projects that have collaborative or multi-jurisdictional components. Additional consideration will be given to economic development and to green projects that support sustainability (reduce, reuse, recycle resources or energy).

Consideration will be given to projects that are uniquely fiscally disadvantaged or otherwise not eligible for securing funding from more traditional sources.


Grants shall generally be awarded for no more than $15,000 unless the Board determines there is an overriding public benefit from the project.

Lincoln County public and private nonprofit entities that are recognized by the IRS as nonprofit organizations in Lincoln County may apply for these funds. Public/private cooperative projects and regional economic development projects also qualify for funding.

Project submission must be endorsed by the organization’s governing body on the application.

Applications that propose to “back-fill” losses due to budget cuts will not be funded.

Ongoing operational costs will not be considered, such as personnel, benefits, supplies and existing program support.

To assist applicants, the Economic Development Alliance will be hosting an application assistance workshop on October 26, 2017 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM in the Board of Commissioners Meeting room located at 225 W. Olive Street, Room 108, Newport, Oregon.

Grants may be awarded contingent on obtaining other funding, though projects will not be eliminated simply because they may qualify for other funding sources. As these funds are limited, however, applicants are encouraged to apply with other funding sources.

Although matching funds are desirable, they are not required.

Applications are required to be delivered in a sealed envelope to the Board of Commissioners Office no later than 5:00 PM on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

Before starting your grant application, please review the funding source's website listed below for updates/changes/addendums/conferences/LOIs.

For additional information regarding the October 26 workshop, please call 541-265-4544.
