Who Can Apply?

Any not-for-profit organization is eligible to apply for a CCP grant of up to $2,000 to be used for a specific event, program or activity, as long as it is open to the public. This includes registered neighborhood associations, groups of citizens with a declared common purpose consistent with the goals of this grant program, and organizations with IRS 501©(3) status. However, IRS 501©(3) status is not required. Applications must clearly demonstrate how the funds will help the proposed cultural event, program, or activity to become more accessible and/or affordable to Multnomah County residents or encourage new cultural activities and organizations. 
Recipients of CCP grants in two consecutive years are not eligible to apply for funds the following year. For example, an organization that was awarded grants to take place in 2017 and 2018 is not eligible to apply for 2019 funds and must wait until the 2020 grant cycle to reapply.
