Deadline April 13th: Culture Development Grants Due Soon!

Oregon Cultural Trust Grants!

It’s crunch time for cultural grant writers in Oregon – applications for FY2019 Cultural Development Grants are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 13.

The grants are designed to support cultural projects that address one of four application categories: access; preservation; creativity; and capacity. In 2017 the Cultural Trust awarded 86 grants ranging from $5,000 to $40,000, with an average grant amount of $11,050. FY2019 grants, to be announced this summer, will fund projects and activities that occur between Aug.1, 2018 and July 30, 2019.

Cultural Development Grants represent one third of the funding the Trust provides for Oregon’s cultural organizations. Other funding includes grants to the Trust’s five statewide partners – the Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Historical Society, Oregon Humanities and the State Historic Preservation Office – and to 45 county and tribal cultural coalitions that fund local initiatives.

Trust Manager Aili Schreiner has limited appointments remaining for scheduled application consultations between now and the April 13 application deadline. Please email aili.schreiner@oregon.gov to set up a call.
