Get Involved

Be a part of the Coalition!

The Multnomah County Cultural Coalition (MCCC) invites community members to apply to serve as Coalition members. Applications are reviewed by the committee. Each coalition member serves for three years and participates in our grants panel at least once during that term. MCCC encourages applications from all corners of the community.

To apply, fill out our questionnaire, sign our agreement, and send materials to for consideration. Thank you.
