The Tillamook PUD Board of Directors determines a budget each year for the program. If funding for the program is approved, applications will be available in mid-December each year for the grant cycle in the following new year. Grants are awarded in mid-March and selected projects must be completed in the calendar year.
When making selections, the Board focuses on the enhancement of economic development, community livability, financial need and outreach. Grant funds awarded to individual entities typically do not exceed $10,000 per year. Entities are eligible to receive up to $20,000 within a five-year period, at the Board’s discretion.
