The mission of the Polk County Cultural Coalition (PCCC) is to encourage projects and activities in the arts, heritage, and humanities that relate to the priorities of  the PCCC.

  • Protect existing cultural assets
  • Focus on young people
  • Help overcome barriers to participation in cultural events and activities

Funding of Projects

PCCC provides funding for projects submitted by non-profit organizations which meet the mission statement. Funds for grants come to PCCC from the Oregon Cultural Trust.

Current Grant Opportunities

The PCCC  is currently accepting applications for grant funding. The focus and priorities of the coalition’s cultural plan are to protect existing cultural assets, focus on introducing young people to the arts, culture heritage and history, and to help overcome barriers to participation in cultural events and activities.

Grant applications will be evaluated on how well the proposed project or activity addresses the priorities of the Polk County Cultural Plan. Projects must address one or more of the four priorities listed and collaboration with other agencies is encouraged. Due to continued restrictions these proposals can be for projects that are provided live, virtual, or a combination of the two. These are competitive grants and all grants received may not be funded.

Awards range from $200 to $2500. Materials, guidelines and application forms for the Primary Grant Cycle for PCCC funds for 2023 are available by viewing and printing the 2023 PCCC Grant Application.
