Funding to Support Projects and Activities in the Arts, Heritage, & Humanities (Oregon)


The Polk County Cultural Coalition (PCCC) is currently accepting applications for grant funding to encourage and support projects and activities in the arts, heritage, and humanities that relate to the priorities of the PCCC Plan.

Donor Name: Polk County Cultural Coalition (PCCC)

State: Oregon

County: Polk County (OR)

Type of Grant: Grant

Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 12/31/2021

Size of the Grant: $200 to $2500

Grant Duration: 10 Months


The focus and priorities of the coalition’s cultural plan are to protect existing cultural assets, focus on introducing young people to the arts, culture heritage and history, and to help overcome barriers to participation in cultural events and activities.

Grant applications will be evaluated on how well the proposed project or activity addresses the priorities of the Polk County Cultural Plan. Projects must address one or more of the four priorities listed and collaboration with other agencies is encouraged. Due to continued restrictions these proposals can be for projects that are provided live, virtual, or a combination of the two. These are competitive grants and all grants received may not be funded.

Funds for PCCC grants come from the Oregon Cultural Trust. Applications for PCCC grants do not disqualify direct applications for funding to the Oregon Cultural Trust or other organizations.


  • Protect existing cultural assets
  • Focus on young people
  • Help overcome barriers to participation in cultural events and activities

Grant Awards

In November 2021 the PCCC will make the 2022 grant application forms available for projects occurring between March 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022. Grant awards from PCCC will range from $200 to $2500 each.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications will be accepted only for cultural projects and activities which involve residents of Polk County.
  • Applicants must be IRS-designated 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations or be working with one. If you are not an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, you must partner with one that is willing to handle the grant funds for you, i.e., a fiscal agent. Note that schools and cities, while non-profit, are not 501(c)(3) organizations and will require a fiscal agent to participate. Individuals who apply must have an IRS-qualified fiscal agent/partner.
