Oregon Community Recovery Grant Program

The Oregon Community Recovery Grant program will provide funds to nonprofit organizations in Oregon that are particularly affected by the outbreak of COVID-19.

Please note that we will continually evaluate the needs of our communities. Due to the changing nature of this outbreak, the types of projects and available funding from this program may also shift over time. 

The COVID-19 applications we have received have outstripped the resources we have available. We are doing our best to respond in a timely fashion, and please be aware that we will not be able to grant many of the requests we receive.
