Linn County accepting applications for economic and community development funds

The Linn County Board of Supervisors is now accepting applications for Linn County’s Economic and Community Development Fund. The Economic and Community Development Fund was established to foster and support economic growth and enhance the quality of life in Linn County.

This is a competitive grant process open to eligible organizations located in Linn County or that have a branch location in Linn County and whose work benefits Linn County residents. This year $200,000 is available.

Grant funds must be used for projects or programs that benefit Linn County residents. Priority is given to programmatic and capital projects over requests for operating support. Preferred applications will be for projects/programs that accomplish the following:

  • Promote economic growth and/or community development in Linn County
  • Demonstrate return on investment dollars
  • Do not duplicate current economic development initiatives
  • Demonstrate a sustainability plan for project continuation beyond Linn County funding

The application deadline is July 1, 2021 at 5 p.m. Application information is available on Linn County’s website www.LinnCounty.org.
