Metro Enhancement Grant Application Online
The grant applications for the Metro Enhancement grant program is now available online to help your group fund a project in the 2015-16 fiscal year. Last year the Oregon City-Metro Enhancement Committee (OCMEC) awarded $87,957 to groups with projects that were of benefit to the citizens in Oregon City. The Metro Enhancement grant provides an excellent opportunity for the City of Oregon City and Metro to support critical neighborhood projects and helps fulfill the community’s vision. This program derives its funding from an intergovernmental agreement between Oregon City and Metro and is generated by a $1.00 per ton surcharge collected at the Metro South Transfer Station on Washington Street. Projects within Oregon City boundaries will be considered and applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on April 29, 2015. The total amount available for grants this year is $140,000, with $25,000 being a maximum award. The OCMEC committee meets June 11th @ 5:30 pm at City Hall to review applications.
The information and application for the grant program is located below. Please read the grant information to make sure your project qualifies for the program. The application can be filled out electronically by saving the file to your computer. Once you’ve completed the application, submit it, along with a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail or deliver to City Hall, 625 Center Street, Oregon City, 97045.
