Multnomah County, Oregon

Who We Are

MCCC is staffed by an all volunteer board representing some of the many threads that weave Multnomah County together.

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, you must be a resident of Multnomah County.  Fill out our Questionnaire and send your resume and cover letter to for consideration. Thank you.
