Grants

It's time to make your neighborhood dream a reality!

~ If you know of a grant that we should add,  please contact us.
Our Happy Block Coalition, Arleta Triangle Project and the Arleta School Edible Garden are a couple of neighborhood projects that were made possible by the following generous partners:

 -----------------------------------------


  • Native Plant Mini Grants of up to $300 for projects that improve watershed health.  Mini grant applications are reviewed throughout the year -- there is no deadline.  They are available to both community groups and some private landowners.   

 ----------------------------------------

The Small Projects and Community Events (SPACE) Program provides grants of up to $1500 to support conservation projects, conservation education, and community events that promote natural resource conservation. 

The types of projects/events that are eligible for SPACE Program funding include on-the-ground restoration or conservation projects, pollution prevention projects, education of youth and/or adults, and community events focused on improving the public’s understanding of natural resource conservation.

Completed application forms are due on the 15th of the month and should be submitted at least 45 days before the date of the project or event. Payments may be requested on an up-front or reimbursement basis.

   SE Uplift also has Graffiti Abatement grants available (some years) for Murals, graffiti clean-ups...etc

Community Watershed Stewardship Grants provide up to $10,000 to schools, churches, businesses and other community organizations for projects that connect people with watersheds and protect and enhance watershed health. These annual grants are funded through a competitive process based on the merits of the project and CWSP goals for watershed and community benefit.

-----------------------------------------

Depave is continually seeking new partnerships with schools and churches in underserved neighborhoods. We are also very interested in sites with potential for restoration of native ecosystems like wetlands, streams, riparian forests, and oak-prairie environments. Since our volunteer base is centered in Portland, Oregon we actively seek projects in the close-in metropolitan area but will also consider good projects on the suburban fringe.
