Default Logo - Newsflash

The Linn County Board of Supervisors is now accepting applications from organizations seeking legacy and community attraction funding from Linn County. The Board of Supervisors established the Linn County Legacy and Community Attraction Fund to foster and support long-standing, new, and diverse community events in Linn County. 

This is a competitive grant process open to non-profit organizations located in Linn County or that have a branch location in Linn County. This year $150,000 is available. 

Grant funds may be used only for events and/or by entities that substantially promote Linn County history and/or culture and/or work to draw in residents and outside visitors alike. Priority is given to requests for events and programmatic and capital projects over requests for operating support. Grant funds may be used only for expenses that have not yet been incurred.
 
 Preferred applications will be for projects/programs that accomplish the following: 

  • Promote Linn County via opportunities for historical education or community attraction
  • Demonstrate a return on investment dollars
  • Do not duplicate current or long-standing events in Linn County 

“The Legacy and Community Attraction Fund’s purpose is to provide financial support for engaging and educational events, both new and old, in Linn County that celebrate the history and diversity of our community,” said Linn County Supervisor Stacey Walker. “Our hope is that these events bring people together both locally and from afar for years to come.”

The application deadline is Friday, September 24, 2021 at 4 p.m. Application information is available on Linn County’s website LinnCounty.org
