The Oregon Historic Trails Fund supports interpretive, educational, and economic projects that preserve and protect the cultural and natural resources of Oregon’s historic trails. An advisory committee made up of persons who are knowledgeable about Oregon’s historic trails and cultural resources reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the OCF board of directors. Approximately $40,000 may be available in one or more grants each year. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in November.

Applications are accepted beginning July 10, 2018, through the deadline of 5 pm on August 31, 2018.

NEW FOR 2018: Applications are accepted through MyOCF, our online application system. Please see the "Application Process" tab for more information.
