[ARCHIVED] Economic and Community Development Fund Applications Now Being Accepted

Economic and Community Development Fund

The Linn County Board of Supervisors is now accepting applications from organizations seeking economic and community development funding from Linn County. The Economic and Community Development Fund is used to enhance the quality of life throughout Linn County by fostering and supporting economic growth and development.

This is a competitive grant process open to organizations located in Linn County or that have a branch location in Linn County. This year $200,000 is available.

Grant funds must be used for projects or programs that benefit Linn County residents. Priority is given to programmatic and capital projects over requests for operating support. Preferred applications will be for projects/programs that accomplish the following:

  • Promote economic growth and/or community development in Linn County
  • Demonstrate return on investment dollars
  • Do not duplicate current economic development initiatives
  • Demonstrate a sustainability plan for project continuation beyond Linn County funding

“We’ve renamed and revamped this grant program to better reflect its intended purpose, which is to help build strong communities throughout the county,” Linn County Supervisor Chair Stacey Walker said. “Our investments will help scale the good work being done in our communities so that more of our residents can be positively impacted.”

The application deadline is Friday, June 28, 2019 at 4 p.m.
