Request for Grant Applications

Rather than funding organizations to help grow sectors, Oregon InC intends to fund discrete projects—called high impact opportunity projects (HIOPs)—that will remove barriers to growth, increase capacity or accomplish other things to help an industry sector grow. To accomplish this, Business Oregon is issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) for HIOPs through 5:00pm December 12, 2017; download the application form. PDF
