Enhancement Grant Program

2017 Applications now Open!

Grant applications are now available online to help your group fund an enhancement project beginning July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. The Enhancement Grant Program (EGP) provides an excellent opportunity for the City of Oregon City to support critical neighborhood projects and helps fulfill the community’s vision. Last year this program, formerly known as the Oregon City Metro Enhancement grant, awarded a combined $216,000 to groups with projects that were of benefit to the citizens in Oregon City. 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.

The total amount available for grants this year is $300,000, with maximum grant awards of $25,000. Projects within Oregon City boundaries will be considered and applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on May 24, 2017.

The application and information for the grant 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 lhogue@orcity.org or mail or deliver to City Hall, 625 Center Street, Oregon City, 97045.

The EGP committee will meet June 29th at 5:30 pm at City Hall to review applications. Please email Leigh Anne Hogue with any questions, or call 503-974-5517.
