Linn County Board of Supervisors Awards $150,000 in Legacy and Community Attraction Grants

Legacy and Community Attraction Grants Awards

The Linn County Board of Supervisors has awarded $150,000 in grants from its Legacy and Community Attraction Fund to four non-profit organizations. The recipients were selected through an annual competitive grant process. 

The Board of Supervisors established the Linn County Legacy and Community Attraction Fund to foster and support long-standing, new, and diverse community events and organizations in Linn County that substantially promote Linn County history or culture and/or work to draw in residents and outside visitors alike. 

The Board of Supervisors received more than $450,000 in grant requests with $150,000 in available funds. A goal of the grant program is to provide a small number of larger awards thereby making a more substantial impact to the recipient organizations. 

This year’s grant award recipients are:

  • The African American Museum: $25,000
  • The History Center: $50,000
  • Indian Creek Nature Center:$25,000
  • The Linn County Fair Association: $50,000
