BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release:
Upcoming 2023 Klamath County Grant Application Cycle
Klamath County has established an Economic Development Grant Program to assist county businesses in promoting the local economy in Klamath County. Economic grants are for regional businesses looking for startup or expansion funds in Klamath County. The Board of County Commissioners look for projects that offer the potential to create and retain jobs as well as to enhance a business and their ability to develop, expand and promote economic growth in the area. Projects should identify a target market and offer a specific strategy for reaching this market. Funding for Economic Development Grant Program comes from the Oregon State Lottery Fund.
Grant applications are reviewed, and recommendations made, by the seven-member advisory committee appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. The advisory committee recommends applications and funding levels to the Board of Commissioners who then execute the final decision for awarding funds.
The grant application cycle is open from September 1 to September 30, 2023. Applicants who have not received grant funding in the past two years must attend a mandatory grant orientation meeting Thursday, September 21, 2023 from 3-4p.m. in room 214 at the Klamath County Government Center. Grant applications must be submitted on-line no later than September 30, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. The Economic Development Advisory Committee will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners following that submission deadline.
