We appreciate Kim Cavatorta writing with news from Tillamook County Cultural Coalition (TCCC). They will host a Grant Application Workshop from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 25 in the Copeland Room at Tillamook Public Library. This will allow participants a full month to prepare their applications, which are due on October 25.

To be considered for a grant, projects must address cultural education, community arts, heritage, the environment, and/ or traditions. To be eligible, grant applicants must be an individual(s), a non-profit organization, or a governmental organization residing or maintaining registered headquarters in Tillamook County. Priority will be given to activities that will benefit a significant number of Tillamook County residents. For more information go to tcpm.org/tccc.htm. Please R.S.V.P. by email to Kim, cava02@centurylink.net
