Projects Funded

The Oregon Sheep Commission prepares a budget each year and, in the process, reviews proposals from organizations and individuals who have submitted funding requests for projects that meet Commission goals. Assessment funds may only be utilized for promotions and educational projects or for research specifically targeting the sheep industry. Assessments funds may not be used to assist an individual or for direct lobbying.
