Grants available for veterans and war memorials

Feb. 26, 2018

Oregon Heritage of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is offering grants for the construction or restoration of veterans and war memorials.

"The program is designed to honor Oregon's veterans by commemorating their service to the country," said Kuri Gill, coordinator for the program. "Local governments may apply to build or repair monuments on public land."

New monuments should recognize veterans and wars not already recognized. Grants for restoration could be used for broken monuments, missing elements of monuments, or the related design elements of monuments for veterans or wars. Grants may also fund the addition of elements to existing monuments.

Recent projects include an addition to the Veterans Memorial Park in Beaverton and the enhancement of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Springfield.

Details and the application information are available at www.oregonheritage.org. The application deadline is April 25, 2018.
