Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board Online Grant Application


As a part of the State’s effort of continuous improvement, OWEB’s database server has been upgraded and migrated to the State Data Center. Much careful planning was done to make the transition as seamless as possible and many issues were successfully avoided. However, we are experiencing occasional database inaccessibility for minutes at a time with no ability to predict the outages. As a result, our

users may be intermittently unable to access our web applications


Also, the system is failing to send out database-driven alerts. These issues are a priority to address but we can give no definitive guidance on when to expect a return to the full functionality of our systems.​

The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) is a state agency that provides grants to help Oregonians take care of local streams, rivers, wetlands and natural areas. OWEB grants are funded from the Oregon Lottery, federal dollars, and salmon license plate revenue. OWEB offers a variety of grant types and programs.

Who can apply?

A grant applicant may be any tribe, watershed council, soil and water conservation district, not-for-profit institution, school, community college, state institution of higher education, independent not-for-profit institution of higher education, or political subdivision of this state that is not a state agency. A state agency or federal agency may apply for funding under this section only as a co-applicant with one of the other eligible entities. Any of these applicants or co-applicants may also serve as a fiscal agent for grants.
