Wilsonville-Logo-News

The Wilsonville Parks and Recreation Department is now accepting applications for three separate and distinct grant programs: the City’s Community Tourism and the Community Opportunity Grant programs, as well as the Clackamas County Tourism Community Partnership Grant program. Each grant program has separate deadlines and distinct criteria.

The City’s Community Tourism Grant Program awards up to $25,000 in funds to organizations that produce projects, programs or events that promote local business and tourism, and for festivals and special events that draw visitors to Wilsonville. The Tourism Promotion Committee reviews requests and awards the grant funds. The deadline for the Tourism Grant is Friday, Feb. 2. Funding for the program comes from the City’s transient room taxes that are assessed on overnight lodging visitors.

The City’s 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. Successful applications for the Community Opportunity Grant program include proposals aimed at promoting education, diversity, arts or community involvement in the city. The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board reviews requests and awards grant funds. Applications for the Community Opportunity Grant are due Friday, March 2.

The Clackamas County Tourism Community Partnership Grant awards funding to local tourism projects that aim to increase the numbers of tourist visitors and increase the economic impact of tourism. A total of up to $20,000 is available for projects that increase overnight lodging stays in Clackamas County, bring visitors into communities from greater than 50 miles away to shop, dine, recreate, take in arts or cultural offerings, or visit heritage sites and entice visitors to “linger longer.”  The application deadline is Monday, March 5.
