April 26, 2022 – Oregon Community Summer Grant Program funding will be awarded to nonprofit and government entities who provide K-12 summer programs. Applications are currently being accepted.
The funds allocated from the Oregon Legislature will be used to increase access to summer enrichment to provide deeper learning, creative spaces for hands-on projects, and opportunities for youth to explore interests and possible career paths. The focus of these grants will prioritize historically underserved populations. Examples of eligible summer program focus areas include arts, environmental education, STEM/STEAM, literacy, mentoring, service learning, sports/recreation, summer academics, workforce development and museum education.
The Oregon Department of Education asked Oregon Association of Education Service Districts (OAESD) to manage the distribution of $50 million to community-based organizations. We anticipate the average grant awards will be $75,000.
Eligible organizations include insured nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations, tribal governments, public agencies including libraries and parks and recreation departments, churches, and colleges located in Oregon. Schools applying for the OAESD Summer Learning Grant must demonstrate formalized partnerships with community-based organizations and/or must not be eligible to receive funding for summer programming from federal and state stimulus packages.
