Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, groups, agencies, and neighborhood associations in eligible areas for community partnerships that improve the local environment. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal. Eligible projects are those that improve water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and connect people with nature. Projects and programs must benefit Portland Metro-area residents.
The restoration and community stewardship grants are intended to support community-driven initiatives and programs. Partnerships are key to a competitive proposal. These grants are intended to serve people of all ages and abilities from all backgrounds. Organizations are encouraged to submit applications for projects benefitting, designed by, and led by Black and Indigenous communities, communities of color and other marginalized groups.
Successful applications typically involve multiple partners actively engaged in leveraging their skills and financial or in-kind services in order to facilitate the program. Partnerships should center racial equity and lead to creative approaches that address multiple social, economic and ecological needs and desires from the community. Therefore, this grant program requires each application to have at least three partners (including applicant). Applicants may partner in multiple grant applications.
Projects must address at least one of the program goals but priority will be given to applications that meet each of the three grant program’s goals.
