Grants ranging from $500 to $2,000 each to Columbia County, Oregon nonprofit organizations and governmental units for arts, heritage, and humanities programs, projects, and activities. Funding is intended to support new and existing cultural assets, and to increase accessibility to cultural activities and events.

For the purposes of this funding opportunity, these three areas are defined as follows:

  1. Heritage is what people receive from their ancestors and the past. It includes, but is not limited to, narrative histories, historic objects, traditions, buildings, documents, pictures, museums, cemeteries, natural features, conservation, preservation, and organizations pursuing history. 
  2. Art is the creative expression of individuals, groups, and organizations. It includes dance, music, creative movement, prose and poetry, architecture, book making, facilities where art is produced, suppliers of arts and materials, education, and performances.
  3. Humanities include peoples' cultural and intellectual heritage, the sum of human experience, thought, and expression. They teach people about each other, and foster the understanding and connectivity that makes for a vital community. The humanities are the stories, the ideas, and the words that help people make sense of their lives and the world.

Priority will be given to proposals that:

  • Protect existing, and create new, cultural assets;
  • Focus on youth to help them experience culture in a variety of ways;
  • Focus on elders to utilize their memories to record their heritage and to seed the future; and
  • Increase access to, and participation in, cultural events and activities.
