Who can apply
The Coquille Tribal Community Fund provides project grants
to non-governmental organizations in Coos, Lane, Douglas,
Jackson and Curry Counties in southwestern Oregon.
The primary focus of the Fund is toward programs or projects
in the areas of education, health, public safety, problem
gaming, the environment, arts and culture and historic preservation.
Proposals that are not clearly within the CTCF priority areas,
but not clearly ineligible, are screened by the Fund's
Board of Trustees.
If at least one Board member seeks a Board meeting discussion
of the proposal, it can be considered for funding.
The Fund also makes grants to governmental agencies in counties
that overlap the Tribe's Reservation. At this time,
these are limited to governmental agencies in Coos County
where funds are available for public programs involving schools,
police and fire departments and similar agencies.
Public agencies not based in Coos County may benefit from
grants indirectly if they apply through a non-profit organization.
Public agencies outside Coos County may also apply for
grants specifically intended for programs or projects they
administer that are located in Coos County.
