The Linn County Board of Supervisors has awarded $150,000 in grants from the Linn County Board of Supervisors Legacy and Community Attraction Fund to five non-profit organizations that work to foster and support long-standing, new, and diverse community events in Linn County. The recipients were selected through a newly created, annual competitive grant process that began in July.

Grant funds may be used only for events and/or by entities that substantially promote Linn County history and/or culture and/or work to draw in residents and outside visitors alike. Priority is given to requests for events and programmatic and capital projects over requests for operating support. Grant funds may be used only for expenses that have not yet been incurred.

Awards were given to the following five non-profits:

  • African American Heritage Foundation - $30,000
  • Indian Creek Nature Center - $25,000
  • Linn County Fair Association - $25,000
  • Marion Chamber of Commerce - $30,000
  • The History Center - $40,000
