The Oregon Heritage of Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is offering grants for the construction or restoration of veterans and war memorials. Local governments and federally recognized tribes are eligible to apply for work on monuments on public-owned properties. New monuments should acknowledge veterans and wars not already recognized in the community. Grants for restoration can be used for broken monuments, missing elements of monuments, or the related design elements of monuments for veterans or wars. Grants also can fund the addition of elements to existing monuments. Projects must include the active participation of a veteran organization. For more information, visit www.oregonheritage.org, or contact Kuri Gill 503-986-0685 or Kuri.firstname.lastname@example.org.
