City of Tigard seeks applicants for community events and social services grants
Members of registered nonprofit organizations providing services to the Tigard community, and organizers of community events, are encouraged to apply for grants from the City of Tigard.
Each year, the city sets aside a portion of the operating budget to assist agencies whose work aligns with the City Council's goals and the Strategic Plan. Grant funding is determined during the annual budget process in the late spring. Once the council adopts a budget in June, the city will notify organizations if they are funded.
This year, the city is launching the Marland Henderson Community Grant, a program named after the former city councilor who served from 2008 to 2016. A portion of the proceeds from the newly implemented marijuana tax will fund the grant. Agencies that work with addictions, alcoholism and homelessness are encouraged to apply.
Applications can be found on the city's website. Completed applications must be returned to the City Finance Office no later than Thursday, Feb. 8.
