Resources for Oregon’s Rural Communities to Secure Federal Funding
There is an unprecedented opportunity for rural Oregon communities to access and utilize public sector funding streams from federal and state governments.
The Pathways to Securing Rural Federal Funding Toolkit provides support and resources intended to help rural jurisdictions, non-profits, special districts and other governmental organizations address the challenges faced in accessing public sector funding streams from federal and state governments.
The lack of capacity, expertise and access to external resources affect small organizations everywhere as well as those serving populations of color, as evidenced by the report, “Pathways to Securing Rural Federal Funding,” commissioned by The Ford Family Foundation and developed by Rural Prosperity Partners; and these Toolkit resources have been developed in response.
Pathways to Securing Rural Federal Funding Toolkit:
- Federal Funding Opportunities Prospect List – an Excel list updated monthly with current federal funding sources that is searchable and can be refined by an agency’s criteria
- Need-based Mentoring – funded by The Ford Family Foundation, provided by Rural Prosperity Partners, and accessed by rural agencies through completion of the Grant Readiness Assessment
- Grant Writer Roster – a vetted listing of qualified grant writers to assist an agency in developing and managing federal grant proposals
- Grant Readiness Assessment – a survey to identify the necessary steps for rural jurisdictions, organizations, and special districts to prepare a successful federal grant application
