From the Corvallis Gazette-Times:
The Oregon Community Foundation has swooped in to lend a big hand this summer with $41.2 million in grants to groups in all 36 Oregon counties. The money is designed to specifically target summer learning and enrichment offerings, particularly for families who need financial help to participate.
[Community Services Consortium], which received $120,000 from the OCF, has served as a state-designated community action agency for the past 40 years.
Types of programs that will receive assistance include:
• Family community engagement activities to support family bonding, mental health, and wellness (e.g. OMSI field trips for families, entrance fees for community venues such as fairs, etc.)
• Youth program equipment purchases.
• Youth summer enrichment activities such as marine science center programs.
• Family stability supports for intergenerational family programs.
