The City of Hillsboro is proud to offer grant programs which provide support to local social service agencies for projects and programs that help to improve the lives of Hillsboro residents.


Community Arts and Culture Grant Program

The Community Arts and Culture Grant Program provides financial support for organizations providing arts and cultural experiences to the Greater Hillsboro Community. Educational and social service organizations are also eligible to apply for funds for arts and culture related programs.

Economic Development

Downtown Storefront Improvement Grant Program

Downtown offers something residents can’t find anywhere else in Hillsboro: historic architecture, a Main Street storefront shopping district, a human-scaled street grid, and unique locally-owned businesses.

The Downtown Storefront Improvement Grant Program is a program designed to complement these strengths by providing assistance and incentives for commercial property owners to enhance the design and appearance of their storefront façades.

Historic Preservation

Joan Krahmer Historic Preservation Grant Program

Through the Joan Krahmer Historic Preservation Grant Program, owners of sites on the Hillsboro Cultural Resource Inventory are eligible for matching grants to partially reimburse the cost of projects related to preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and reconstruction of historic homes and buildings. The program was established in the memory of Joan Krahmer, a lifelong Hillsboro resident and member of the Historic Landmarks Advisory Committee.

Social Services Grant Programs

Community Development Block Grant

Starting July 2018 the City of Hillsboro will be a direct recipient of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Closeup image of a Mom & Son in a fieldprogram from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which supports public services and improvements that benefit low- and moderate-income individuals, families, and neighborhoods.

Community Services Grants

The Community Services Grant Program is an annual, competitive grant intended to help support programs or activities that address community needs including, but not limited to, mental and physical health, child care, drug and alcohol recovery, vocational rehabilitation, aging, housing, family support and public safety.

Community Impact Grant

The Community Impact Grant is a new pilot program designed to provide multi-year grant funding to a nonprofit organization for a project or program that makes a sustained, targeted impact in a priority area of community concern. The Impact Grant is a competitive grant awarded to an organization once every three years.
