County offers grants to local nonprofits


For the fifth straight year Clackamas County commissioners will distribute $200,000 in small grants to organizations providing services to vulnerable populations in Clackamas County.

The money was set aside by the county’s budget committee as part of the recently approved fiscal 2013-14 budget. This is a continuation of a successful program that last year distributed grants to 24 local nonprofit organizations for programs ranging from a local food pantry to a dental care program for K-12 students.

The goal of the small grants program is to assist organizations whose purpose is to help the most vulnerable residents of Clackamas County. The grants are intended to fund small projects that would aid these organizations in serving larger populations.

Organizations interested in being considered for funding must submit completed forms by today. Final determination of the awards will be made in the fall, and funds will be awarded by the end of October.

Organizations receiving funding will be required to show how the grant was used, including service level.
