Grant Process

Grants are awarded through a competitive process. The application includes a narrative and supporting documents.  Grant applications are reviewed and scored by a community-based EPAP Grant Review Committee based on the criteria listed in the application package. Grant funding is approved through consensus at the EPAP General Meeting. The Portland City Council makes the final decision.


Each application is scored individually using the Scoring Criteria included in the application packet. These items are a priority for the Grants Review Committee.  Applicants may be contacted during the review process for additional information and/or to explore potential partnership opportunities.
