Awarding of 2020 Grant Funds

Online Application

CCWC utilizes an online grant application system – Submittable. All applications must be submitted via Submittable.

If you have not used Submittable in the past, you will need to create an account.

The Submittable form will auto save periodically. You can also save a draft and come back to your application by clicking the “Save Draft” button at the bottom of the page.

We recommend you compose your responses to the narrative questions in a word processor offline and then copy/paste your responses into this form. This insures you have a backup in the event of technical issues.

Final reports

Submit your final reports via this form.

Final Report forms have been sent to all 2019 grantees via email. If you need help locating the report contact Quinn at 503-823-2928 or
