Grant application FAQs
What is the timeline for a CCWC grant?
Our grant cycle typically runs mid September through early October of each year.
What is the grant application process?
The grant cycle opens in late summer. Around this time, CCWC will hold one or more orientation sessions. Grants can be submitted during the following 4-6 weeks. The grant deadline normally is around early October. At this time, all grant applications are due” no exceptions. In December, CCWC sends out grant award notifications.
Is a CCWC grant the same as a RACC grant?
No, they are different. CCWC disperses funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust only. RACC receives funding from a variety of public and private partners to serve artists, arts organizations, schools and residents throughout Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties. Oregon Cultural Trust is only one funding partner out of many.
I have an idea for a grant. How do I know if it qualifies?
You are encouraged to attend one of the Fall orientation sessions for more information. Visit this web site Summer/Fall for grant guidelines, and the schedule of orientation sessions.
I have a program I’d like to bring to Washington County Schools. Any tips?
Before applying for your grant, we recommend you seek prior approval in writing from the school(s), stating their willingness to accommodate your show or program in their school schedule.
