The Community Support Grant Program was developed over 20 years ago to assist local not-for-profit organizations in funding projects that promote economic growth and enhance community liveability in Tillamook County. The Board of Directors budgets funds for the program annually, the amount budgeted for the program in 2022 was $90,000.
Tillamook PUD is excited about these valuable projects and looks forward to the positive impact each will have within the community.
