Oregon Main Street Network Information

​Oregon Main Street, a Main Street America State Coordinating program, is here to help communities wherever they are in their downtown revitalization efforts. We provide support to organizations who are ready to roll-up their sleeves; develop a vision for how they want their downtown to look, feel, and function; and then attract the people and financial resources to bring about the change they want to see happen. We accomplish this by providing training and technical assistance to communities participating in the Main Street Track of the Oregon Main Street Network, and by access to the Oregon Main Street Revitalization Grant which funds building improvement projects that spur economic development for all Network communities (available once per biennium in odd years).

Oregon Main Street has four guides to help your Main Street efforts and the following Document Library with examples:

​​Simliar to how you had to submit an application to first join the network, there is an application process to move up in within the tiers.

OMS staff would be happy to discuss readiness to move up to the next tier, benefits of doing such, and the application process.

Application Process

Eligible Applicants: The Excellence on Main Awards is open to all organizations participating in the "Main Street Track" of the Oregon Main Street Network, including Performing Main Street, Transforming Downtown, and Exploring Downtown levels.

Project Time Frame: If applicable, all projects must have been completed between July 2020 and June 2021.

Registration for the Online Application System: We are using our grants system for nominations this year To access the application, register at www.oprdgrants.org. If you already have an account (e.g., you previously applied for an Oregon Main Street Revitalization grant or Diamonds in the Rough), then request through Kuri.Gill@oregon.gov or 503-986-0685 to add Excellence on Main Awards option to your account. Log in using your email address and your password. See online registration instructions for detailed directions to use the online grant system. https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/OH/Pages/Grants.aspx#one

Application Submission: Once you have a login, you will be able to submit your application. You can enter information, save, log out, log back in, enter more, etc. as many times as you would like before you submit. Instructions for OPRD: Grants Online visit our website. https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/OH/Pages/Grants.aspx

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

One issue was discovered. Two categories were missed in the list of categories: Standout Volunteer  and Outstanding Special Project. Since people have started working on nominations…way to go!...We can’t change the application.

So here is the work around. For both of these categories, in the Nomination Category drop down select Executive Manager (or Main Street Manager) of the Year. This will avoid any confusion because we know the managers.

In the Description Category – Enter ‘Standout Volunteer’ or ‘Outstanding Special Project’ At the very beginning of the Description section.

Our apologies for complicating a transition to a new process. Change is hard, this year is hard. Please, please, please don’t let it stop you from nominating!

Contact Kuri Gill at 503-383-6787 or kuri.gill@oregon.gov for assistance.

OMS Listserv Information - We have an open listerv that all tiers of the Oregon Main Street Network can subscribe to and utilize. Here are some tips on using it:

  • If you want to join the listserve, contact sheri.stuart@oregon.gov and she will add you to it. It is closed to the OMS Network only so you will need to get approval from her to join.
  • Anyone subscribed to the listserv can send an email out with an inquiry, lessons learned request, info request, bragging about an awesome thing your group did, awesome resource you found, etc.
  • To send an announcement or question to the listserv, email oms_managers@omls.oregon.gov.
  • WARNING! We welcome dialogue and replies to things posted on the listserv, however, be aware that when you reply, your reply is going to everyone on the listerv. If you just want to say something to the person who sent it, forward your personal response to them seperately.
  • Any questions? Ask OMS staff!

​This tool was developed through a partnership between Main Street Iowa, Oregon Main Street, and Washington Main Street. This Recovery Action Plan is meant to be used and adapted by local Main Street programs of all types and in all locations whether you are just getting started with strategic planning or as an overlay for your existing plan.
