Beginning September 23, 2021, the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition (TCCC) will be accepting grant applications for fiscal year 2022. Completed 2022 grant applications must be submitted as a single embedded PDF by 5:00 p.m. PST November 15 2021 for review. This grant opportunity is for citizens and organizations of Tillamook County who wish to obtain funding to develop projects that celebrate the arts, humanities and heritage of our county.
To be considered for a TCCC grant for fiscal year 2022, projects must address one or more of the following: cultural education, community arts, heritage, environment, and/or traditions. To be eligible, grant applicants must be an individual, a non-profit organization, or a government organization. Individuals must be residents and organizations must have their registered office in Tillamook County. Priority will be given to activities that will benefit a significant number of Tillamook County residents.
During a normal year, TCCC would host an in-person workshop to provide training on the grant application process. Due to public health and safety concerns at this time, TCCC will be hosting a Zoom online grant information session on Wednesday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. During this session, we will review a short presentation tool, with interested individuals and organizations. If you would like to attend the Zoom session, please email [email protected] with your name and/or organization details and a Zoom link will be sent to you closer to the event date. If you cannot attend, and upon request, we can share a PDF with you after September 22 that will contain useful information. Of course, TCCC can be contacted at any time with any questions or concerns regarding the application process. To receive
the “TCCC Application Workshop for 2022 Grants” presentation and/or to ask unanswered questions, email [email protected]
