Applications are open now for five Oregon Heritage grant programs

Preserving Oregon Grants fund work on historic properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and archaeology projects. Work may include non-maintenance preservation like window repair, roof work, foundation projects, and plumbing and electrical needs. It can also fund significant work contributing toward identifying, preserving and interpreting archaeological sites. Matching grants may be for up to $20,000.

Diamond in the Rough Grants help restore or reconstruct the facades of buildings that have been heavily altered over the years. These grant return buildings to their historic appearance and potentially qualify them for historic register designation (local or national). Matching grants may be for up to $20,000.

Oregon Museum Grants support museums in completing projects related to collections care, heritage tourism, and education. Museums may also partner with other organizations for projects that might be outside the museum, but still meet the museum's mission. Match is not required for these grants, but it makes them more competitive. Awards generally range from $1000-$8000.

Oregon Historic Cemeteries Grants fund projects that preserve historic cemeteries. Projects funded in the past include marker repair workshops, fencing, signs, interpretive panels and brochures, security lighting, access improvements, records management and more. Cemeteries must be listed as historic with the Oregon Commission on Historic Cemeteries. Match is not required for these grants, but it makes them more competitive. Awards generally range from $1000-$8000.

Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grants fund downtown revitalization efforts in communities participating in the Oregon Main Street Network. The Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant funds may be used to acquire, rehabilitate, and construct buildings on properties in designated downtown areas statewide. Matching grants may be for up to $100,000.

Workshops and grant information
Oregon Heritage staff is happy to help people think through possible projects, review applications, and assist with the online grant application system. A free workshop specific to the Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant will be January 31 in Cottage Grove. Additional, grant workshops on project planning and grant writing will be offered. A two-hour workshop will be in Salem on March 15. A shorter webinar will be available on March 16. Two webinars, January 18 and 19, will explain the online grant system.

To learn more about these grant programs and others from the Oregon Cultural Trust, Oregon Humanities and Oregon Arts Commission attend one of the Meet the Funders events coming up in February.
