The City of Wilsonville’s Parks and Recreation Department is now accepting applications for the Community Tourism and the Community Opportunity Grant Programs. There are separate deadlines for the two grant programs, both of which are awarded by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.
The Community Tourism Grant Program awards funds to organizations that produce projects, programs or events that promote local business and tourism, and for festivals and special events for the benefit of the Wilsonville community. The deadline for the Tourism Grant is Friday, Feb. 5, 5 p.m. Funding for the program comes from the City’s transient lodging taxes that are assessed on overnight lodging visitors.
The Community Opportunity Grant Program, with funds distributed twice per year for a total of $25,000, provides funding for a wide range of local programs and projects in Wilsonville. Funds for the Opportunity Grant program come from the City’s general fund.
Opportunity Grant program include proposals aimed at promoting education, diversity, arts or community involvement in the city. Applications are due Friday, March 4, 5 p.m.
