Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition

The Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition was developed for the purpose of awarding State of Oregon grant money to organizations and individuals within Wallowa County whose endeavors promote culture within the county. The Oregon Cultural Trust was created under the direction of the Oregon State Legislature with the purpose of awarding grant funds to Oregon counties and Confederated Tribes to support endeavors that promote arts, humanities and local heritage. For more information about the Oregon Cultural Trust, or to donate, visit CulturalTrust.org.

About: The Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition supports local cultural development, as each county and tribe shapes its specific cultural priorities. WCCTC typically receives approximately $6,500 to disperse to local cultural organizations each year. The Coalition makes state cultural funding available to many rural counties that, otherwise, would not have it.

Information: Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition (WCCTC) grant applications are due at the beginning of November. The WCCTC supports local, cultural endeavors and promotes participation in arts, heritage and humanities through disseminating Oregon Cultural Trust grant money. Eligible grant applicants must be Wallowa County residents and have a public component of their project that increases access to local culture. Applicants must be a not-for-profit or individual entity and not a commercial business. Successful grant applicants make access to culture more available; recover and preserve historic assets and achievements; support development of artists and cultural experiences; and/or strengthen the capacity of cultural organizations in Wallowa County.

WCCTC grants are typically awarded in amounts from $250-$1,000.
