Community Cultural Participation Grants

The MCCC Community Cultural Participation (CCP) Grant Program supports commu­nity-based cultural events, programs and organizations. Community Cultural Participation Grants can be used for a specific cultural event, program, or activity as long as it is open to the public. Any not-for-profit organization will be eligible to apply for a CCP grant up to $2,000. However, IRS 501c3 status is not required.

Applications must clearly demonstrate how the funds will help the proposed cultural event, program, or activity to become more accessible and/or affordable to Multnomah County residents or encourage new cultural activities and organizations.
