Economic Development Grant Program

Economic Development Projects

Klamath County has established an Economic Development Grant Program to assist local organizations in furthering economic development in Klamath County. The Board of County Commissioners looks for projects that offer special or unique opportunities consistent with local economic development goals and objectives. Projects should identify a specific project and indicate how that project will further economic development.

Review Panel

Grant applications are reviewed and recommendations made by a seven-member review panel appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The review panel recommends applications and funding levels to the Board of Commissioners who will then make the final decision for awarding funds.
