CRPCA considers grants twice a year, in the spring and in the fall. Awards are granted at the CRPCA business meeting following the application deadline.

September 25, 2019 October 13, 2019 TBA – at least $2,000

Guidelines for Grant Proposals

CRPCA’s members have collectively indicated an interest in funding grants that meet these guidelines:

  • Projects from sponsors with a connection to Oregon or southwest Washington
  • Projects that meet community needs
  • Projects that empower the recipients
  • Projects with fleshed-out monitoring, evaluation, and feasibility plans
  • Projects that are self-sustainable at the end of the grant period

Grantmaking Procedures
A Grant Committee reviews all grant applications. They are responsible for reading the grant application in full, asking questions of the grant applicant (should clarification be needed), and then proposing a recommendation to CRPCA members at the next business meeting. The final decision to fund is made by a vote of all members who are present at the business meeting which coincides with the grant giving cycle.

Recipients are notified within one week of the decision and awards are posted to the CRPCA website and included in the CRPCA newsletter. If awarded funding, the recipient will be required to sign a contract with CRPCA regarding the use of the funds. Recipients are also expected to report project impact at a CRPCA business meeting or through the CRPCA newsletter.

How to Apply
To solicit funds from CRPCA please submit our Grant Application (Word document) along with a spreadsheet or similar document showing how the money is to be used. By our application deadline, send the electronic documents to our Grants Coordinator, Chuck McConnell, at grants AT
