HH Final Run

The final paid subscription of the Hermiston Herald runs off the press at the East Oregonian in Pendleton on April 28, 2020. The newspaper has since converted to free distribution to all Hermiston area residents.

As businesses reopen, EO Media Group wants to help them spread the word.

The Oregon family-owned multimedia company has established a Community Marketing Grant Program to assist businesses affected by COVID-19 restrictions in the markets served by the company’s 12 newspapers, including the Hermiston Herald and East Oregonian.

Up to $1 million in matching advertising dollars will be available. Recipients of the Community Marketing Grant Program will be awarded a dollar-for-dollar match for print or digital advertising in EO Media Group publications.

Community organizations and locally owned and operated businesses are encouraged to apply to extend their marketing to local residents during this challenging time. Grants are available for a minimum of $250 and maximum of $10,000 in matching funds each month, and will be awarded between May 15 and July 31. Applications will be accepted starting May 15 and must be submitted online at eomediagroup.com/marketing-grant.

Grants will be reviewed and replied to within one to two days of application. For more information, contact Kathryn Brown at 541-278-2667 or kbbrown@eastoregonian.com.
