Grants to Multnomah County, Oregon local governments, public libraries, K-12 schools, IHEs, and nonprofit organizations to use cable system technology to address local information or communication needs. Applicants must register and submit a pre-application prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to assist local entities in using cable system technology for enhanced communications, including video, data and voice applications.

Grants provide a financial means to address concrete local needs, such as improving learning resources in public schools and community colleges; removing barriers to receiving an education, information or social services by disadvantaged or challenged people; and increasing access to media tools for local discourse and communications.

As a result of the source of funding for the Community Grants Program, proposed projects must use either community access channels or the Institutional Network (I-Net) within Multnomah County to meet a local communication or information need.

Proposed projects must fulfill all the following minimum requirements to be considered in the Pre-Application process:

  • Use either community access channels or the Institutional Network (I-Net) within Multnomah County to meet a local communication or information need.
  • Address at least one of the four public benefit areas identified for the grant program.
  • Have only capital costs included for funding from grant funds.
