Who Can Apply?
Any group with a community project that takes place within East Portland and involves and benefits East Portlanders.
Your project must meet at least one of the goals of the grant program. It does not need to meet more than one goal. The goals of the grant program are:
• Increase the number and diversity of people who are involved and engaged in their communities
• Strengthen community capacity through leadership development, skills building, fostering teamwork and/or partnerships, and community building
• Increase community impact on public decisions
Engagement of communities historically underrepresented in and undeserved by our programming – communities of color, immigrant and refugee communities, low income individuals and families, youth, people with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bi, transgender-ed people –  is a high priority for our Small Grants Program. 
The EPNO Small Grants program is a general grant program. Many community projects will qualify for it. To learn more about types of projects funded in the past see the grant application or visit http://www.eastportland.org/support-grant-writers
