2024 Community Grants Program

Updated March 11, 2024

Nearly 650 nonprofits across all 36 Oregon counties applied for the spring cycle of Community Grants, and our team has thoroughly enjoyed reading your applications and learning more about the impact your organizations are having in our state. Please note: The first round of declines were communicated at the end of February 2024 and final grantees and remaining unsuccessful applications will be notified in mid-May 2024.

Highlights for 2024

  • The spring cycle is for general operating support (December – May). This cycle we prioritized funding to organizations that are small and rural, culturally specific or culturally responsive. Please see the Program Guidelines for more details.
  • The fall cycle is for capacity building, small capital and new or expanding project funding. We anticipate publishing our program guidelines at the end of May and expect applications to open at the end of June. Please check back for specific dates and updates.
