Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to Oregon nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for initiatives and activities to develop the local economy. Funding is intended to develop the local community and create economic opportunities and employment. Projects will be awarded funding on their individual strengths. Applications must be located in Lincoln County.

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.

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.
