Grants of up to $1,500 to Oregon nonprofit organizations, individuals, and groups for arts and cultural projects to benefit local residents and visitors in eligible regions. Funding is intended for activities that address community needs and create a positive impact in Sherman County.

  2. Engage the community in the arts, heritage or humanities.
  3. Promote cultural programs that stimulate economic growth.
  4. Promote publication and dissemination of cultural information related to the arts and culture within Sherman County.

    • Protect and strengthen investment in Sherman County’s existing cultural resources.
    • Engage youth in the arts, heritage, and humanities.
    • Promote cultural programs that stimulate cultural opportunities and economic growth and encourage that there are accessible, suitable, and affordable spaces for cultural activities in Sherman County.

    • Encourage comprehensive arts-focused planning efforts in Sherman County through the integration of cultural development strategies with economic development policies
  • Result in a demonstrable benefit to County residents and visitors.

It is not the purpose of the Cultural Coalition to fund ongoing programs or favor specific organizations with annual awards. With this in view, it is possible that first time or less frequent applicants may get favorable notice.
