Each year, approximately $8,000 is made available by the Oregon Cultural Trust to the local Coalition to fund projects in art, music, humanities and heritage. Groups and individuals can go online to the Clatsop Cultural Coalition’s website to see this year’s application form, and learn about the goals and work of the Coalition.

Grants of up to $2,000 can be given to organized groups or individuals. Cultural Trust funding has gone to school music programs, theater performances, dance instruction, ballet costumes, musical instruments, speakers, and even paint for a historic community building, among others. Formal non-profit status is not required.

There will be an opportunity for coaching on preparation of the application and a chance to ask questions from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 1 in the Liberty Theater’s McTavish Room, at 12th and Commercial streets in Astoria. All interested parties are welcome.

Application forms are on the Coalition’s website, clatsopculturalcoalition.org . Completed applications must be received by 5 p.m. Nov. 1, at P.O.Box 864, Astoria, Oregon, 97103. Successful applicants will be notified and will receive their checks at an awards ceremony Dec. 4.
