Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition

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.

2023 Applications Are Now Closed

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 Wallowa County Cultural Trust Coalition provides financial support to individuals and organizations who contribute to the culture of our County through their efforts in the areas of arts, humanities and heritage. Applicants must be a not-for-profit entity or an individual and not a commercial business. We fund a wide range of cultural activities that celebrate the diverse cultural heritage of Wallowa County. Applicants must be residents of Wallowa County and projects must contain a public component that increases access to local culture.

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