Villages of Mt. Hood CPP Group
The Villages of Mt. Hood Community Partnership Program (CPP) Group works with Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs to award up to $20,000 per year to enhance tourism related resources in the Villages of Mt. Hood.
Community Partnership Program (CPP) Grants are made available by Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory (OMHT) for tourism-related projects in local communities such as Villages of Mt. Hood. On-line applications are submitted to Mt. Hood Territory. They are then forwarded to our local Villages of Mt. Hood CPP group to review and recommend funding.
Qualifying projects are those that demonstrate an ability to: 1) increase overnight stays in lodging facilities, 2) bring visitors into a community from more than 50 miles away to recreate, shop, dine or take in the arts, cultural or historic offerings, and/or 3) entice visitors to linger longer in a community within Clackamas County. The most competitive projects are those that offer the greatest potential to increase tourism* activity within the communities they are seeking funding.
Funding for this grant program comes from the County’s 6% transient lodging tax. Questions about the grant program can be directed to Jim Austin at 503/742-5901.
