Cultural Trust offers grants

Do you have a great art display or show you’d like to produce? Maybe you want to preserve or highlight some fascinating part of Hood River County’s cultural heritage? Or perhaps you’d like to invite a fascinating author or historian to the area to help people learn more about literature or the humanities? If you have a project in the arts, heritage, or humanities, the Hood River Cultural Trust wants you! HRCT is now accepting applications for the 2014 grant cycle. Applications are due on Wednesday, Oct. 1.

HRCT is an organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving cultural expression throughout Hood River County.
