Grants offered for war memorials

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is offering grants for the construction or restoration of veterans and war memorials.

New monuments should recognize veterans and wars not already recognized. Grants for restoration could be used for broken monuments, missing elements of monuments or the related design elements of monuments for veterans or earlier wars, such as World War I. 

Details and the application information are available at www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/FINASST/Pages/grants.aspx. 

The application deadline is June 30.
