Grant Program Description

The Hillsboro Community Impact Grant Program is a competitive grant program designed to provide multi-year funding to a nonprofit organization for a project or program that makes a targeted impact in a priority area of community concern.

Eligible nonprofit organizations may apply for up to $120,000 in grant funds to be distributed over the three year period (maximum $40,000 per year). 


The application process is now closed.

Priority Area: Homelessness

At the beginning of each grant cycle, a priority area is determined by the City of Hillsboro. The Impact Grant Program seeks to fund creative and unique projects or programs that will make a targeted impact on the priority area.

The priority area for the 2020 to 2023 grant cycle is homelessness.

Nonprofit organizations are invited to apply for Impact Grant funds with proposals for project or programs to specifically address homelessness within Hillsboro. Preference will be given to projects and programs that emphasize direct services, measurable outcomes, financial stability, collaboration with community partners, and other criteria.

Examples of projects or programs that address issues related to homelessness may include but are not limited to:

  • Bathing and laundry services
  • Shelter, clothing, and other basic needs
  • Assistance obtaining identification & social security/disability benefits
  • Mental health services
  • Addiction services
