“Cultural Coalition” is a group organized in an Oregon county or within a federally recognized Indian Tribe, in Oregon to identify priorities and specific strategies for building public participation in culture. Each coalition will include representation from the arts, heritage, humanities and other organizations relevant to community cultural participation, including without limitation, educational institutions, libraries, media or businesses, and reflect the diversity of the County or Tribe. The primary purpose of the coalition is to develop a cultural plan for the area served and to award and monitor grant funds awarded to address cultural goals.
