Oregon Historic Trails Fund Open for Applications, Deadline: August 31

Supporting interpretive, educational and economic projects that preserve and protect the cultural and natural resources of Oregon’s historic trails.


Each fall, the Oregon Historic Trails Fund awards grants to support projects that interpret, preserve or maintain Oregon’s trail-related resources. Grants may also be awarded for marketing, education, advocacy and research relating to historic trails. An advisory committee made up of people who are knowledgeable about Oregon’s historic trails and cultural resources reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the OCF board. Approximately $40,000 may be available in one or more grants each year. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in November. Please review our Request for Proposals for more information.


The fund is dedicated to projects related to Oregon historic trails as recognized by the state legislature in ORS 358.057.
