Apply for a community grant

The city of West Linn has a limited amount of funding available for community organizations’ requests for support for their yearly events, operations and activities.

Community organizations are asked to submit a standardized form each spring so all requests received by the city can be similarly evaluated during the community grant allocation process. The budget typically includes an allocation to qualifying organizations.

Neighborhood associations are not eligible for the community grant program. The grant request form is designed for community-based organizations that are interested in receiving grant funding for specific, planned events and activities occurring between July and June of the coming year.

Although the city budgets on a biennial (two-year) basis, the request must be submitted for each of the fiscal years.

Submitted application forms are evaluated by the members of the citizen budget committee. This citizen group determines how best to allocate available funding based upon the criteria and develops its recommendations, which are forwarded to the city council for approval.

The application window will close March 20. For more information, visit westlinnoregon.gov/finance/community-grant-program.
