Oregon Community Recovery Grant Program

Oregon Community Foundation
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis

The Oregon Community Recovery Grant Program provides funding to nonprofit organizations in Oregon that are responding to the immediate needs of Oregon communities facing disproportionate health, social, and economic impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including rural and minority populations. The program supports initiatives to address the following needs:

  • Basic needs – assistance to keep people housed, fed, healthy, and safe
  • Jobs and economy – services to help create and connect people to jobs
  • Childcare – strategies for creating, retaining, and increasing childcare, including childcare for school-aged children and children of essential workers
  • Social and emotional needs – services for mental health, child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and other social/emotional issues exacerbated by the crisis
  • School closures – strategies for addressing learning loss, such as distance learning and instructional supports; ancillary services provided by schools, including for health, mental health, and nutrition; and post-secondary issues
  • Healthcare – culturally specific outreach, education, and information for vulnerable populations; and community-based adaptations, such as mobile care and telehealth, needed to meet demand for healthcare services

Nonprofit organizations based in or doing work in Oregon are eligible to apply. Organizations in Clark County, Washington are also eligible.

Priority consideration will be given to organizations serving Oregon communities experiencing the most disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, including communities of color, Black, Latinx, Native American, and Asian/Pacific Islander; rural communities; and other vulnerable communities.

Priority will also be given to programs serving individuals and families belonging to vulnerable populations disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, including but not limited to:

  • Frontline essential workers
  • Immigrants, refugees, and undocumented persons
  • Individuals that are homeless
  • Individuals with underlying health conditions
  • LGBTQ+
  • Low-income
