ABOUT THE CAPACITY & SMALL PROJECT GRANTS
Travel Oregon’s Competitive Grants are intended to develop and improve economies of communities throughout Oregon by the means of enhancement, expansion and promotion of the visitor industry.
To strengthen local communities through its current round of funding, Travel Oregon has created a Capacity & Small Project Grants program that focuses specifically on supporting destination marketing/management organizations and federally-recognized tribes through capacity building.
Funds are intended to develop and refine skills, systems, structures, and strategies so the organization can successfully fulfill its mission and achieve outcomes that are more impactful. Funds also support diversity, equity and inclusion training and coaching to support these entities as they advance racial equity within their organizations and through their work.
Applications will be accepted until Nov. 28 at 5 p.m. PST.
