Community Grants

Applications for NECN’s next round of grants for community-based projects will be available on this page as of January 5, 2015.

During September, October and November 2014, proceeds from food and drink purchases at Oregon Public House (700 NE Dekum St.) go to fund NECN’s 2015 Community Grants! Stop by for a great meal and local beer, and tell the server that you’d like your purchase to support NECN.
