Linn County Accepting Applications for Legacy & Community Attraction Funds

Legacy and Community Attraction Grants

The Linn County Board of Supervisors is now accepting applications for the Legacy & Community Attraction Fund grant program. The Board of Supervisors established the Linn County Legacy & Community Attraction Fund to foster and support long-standing, new, and diverse community events and organizations in Linn County. 

Grant funds must be used to substantially promote Linn County history 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

This is a competitive grant process open to nonprofit organizations located in Linn County or that have a branch location in Linn County. This year $50,000 is available. To provide substantial, quality awards, a maximum of five awards will be given.

The application deadline is Sept. 29, 2023, at 5 p.m.
