Grant Funding For Rural Communities
There is an unprecedented opportunity for Oregon’s rural communities to access federal and state grants. Use the Pathways to Securing Rural Federal Funding Toolkit to leverage these resources for your community.
Oregon’s Economic Development Districts take a long-term, holistic view of regional community and economic development opportunities and challenges. We recognize the interdependence and cross-cutting relationships between economic development, environmental stewardship, infrastructure upgrades, intermodal transportation systems, affordable and quality housing, a skilled and reliable workforce and many other factors essential to our state’s economic competitiveness and strong quality of life. We encourage you to explore our website and visit our member districts to learn about the resources our Association of Districts can provide.

- Entrepreneurial development
- Energy and environmental stewardship
- Community and economic development
- Emergency management and homeland security preparedness
- Geographic information systems (GIS)
