Lake Oswego municipal grant application nears deadline
The municipal grant application is closing soon for Lake Oswego nonprofit organizations and government entities seeking funding for special projects, services or cultural grants that benefit the community.
Applications opened Jan. 15 and will close March 15.
The special project grants are aimed at supporting, enhancing and encouraging the economic or environmental preservation or enhancement of Lake Oswego, while the social services grants are generally awarded to nonprofits that serve the social needs of community members and assists with their quality of life.
The cultural grants provide financial assistance to nonprofit organizations that work to improve the cultural experiences and lives of people within the community.
"We believe in collaborating with nonprofits and other organizations that can provide services because they already have the infrastructure and setup to do so, and relationships built with the community," said Public Works Director Anthony Hooper.
Last year, a total of $50,000 was divided among organizations including Clackamas Women's Services, Hunger Fighters Oregon, Lakewood Center for the Arts and Tools 4 Troops.
This year, there will be up to $45,000 awarded for municipal grants.
The amount will vary based on how many organizations apply and the amount of funds they request.
Recipients will be notified in spring and funding will begin July 1.
Applications can be emailed to Waverly or mailed to the city's finance department.
