Source Name / Description Deadline How to Apply


Local Government Grant Program

The following changes to the 2020 LGGP are effective immediately:

·        Large Grant Schedule:  The Large grant presentation meeting scheduled for June 9-11 in Salem to review current applications will be postponed until further notice.  Hopefully, we can look at rescheduling the presentation meeting in September or October.

·        Small Grant Schedule:  Small grant applications are due May 1st.  However, final evaluation and ranking will be put on hold until further notice.

·        Planning Grant Schedule:  Planning grant applications are due May 15th.  However, final evaluation and ranking will be put on hold until further notice.

·        New Grant Awards:  At this point, no new Local Government grant awards will be made until we have a better picture of Lottery funding, going forward.  In the meantime, we will continue our technical reviews of current applications in anticipation of “returning to normal” in the Fall.

The LGGP is funded by Oregon State Lottery revenue.  With the Governor’s Executive Order to “Stay Home, Save Lives,”  restaurants and bars were closed to curb the spread of COVID-19.  That significantly cut lottery revenues.  While OPRD does have cash reserves, we first need to honor our existing LGGP grant obligations.  When Lottery revenues resume, Lottery bond obligations will take priority over State Parks, and the LGGP will not be first in line to receive Lottery distributions.  Consequently, we need to make these changes to the 2020 LGGP schedule.

County Opportunity Grant Program (COGP)

The following changes to the COGP are effective immediately until further notice:

  • 2020 COGP Awards:   2020 COGP Awards will be put on hold until we have a clear picture of RV Fee revenue, going forward. 

  • 2021 COGP Grant Cycle:  At this point, the timing and funding of the 2021 County Opportunity Grant cycle are uncertain and the cycle will be on hold until further notice.

The COGP is funded from the registration of Recreational Vehicles within the state.  RV fee revenues are expected to drop, at least for a few months.  By how much, we simply don’t know, yet.  Until we have a better picture of RV fee revenues in the coming months, the schedule for the 2021 COGP grant cycle is uncertain.
