Better Together Grants
Better Together Grants are small grants for projects or activities that bring people together to improve your community. Can you involve your neighbors in something you love to do or care about? Tell us your idea and we’ll help you get it done.
Who can apply?
Any group of four or more Oregonians who are friends, neighbors, or part of a local group and aren’t part of the same family. Organizations are welcome to apply. Youth under age 18 are welcome to apply, but must have a sponsor who is 21 or older.
How large are the grants?
Grants of up to $500 are available.
What can the grants be used for?
Grants can be used to purchase supplies and materials to make your project successful. The project or activity must be open to anyone who wants to participate. Examples include: providing tools or materials for a community garden; creating a public arts project; fixing up a park; making welcome signs; starting a new club; providing sports equipment; or organizing a public workshop on a topic that builds community. Tell us your idea and we’ll help you get it done!
