Thirty organizations have received $190,000 in grants awarded by the Oregon Arts Commission. The 2016 Arts Build Communities grants will be used for projects around the state ranging from vacant storefronts in Corvallis, to funding a short documentary about homelessness in Portland, to providing supplies for college students to promote a visual arts program for people suffering from dementia and PTSD. The Oregon Arts Commission is comprised of nine governor-appointed commissioners who work to find art areas of need and create policies supporting the arts. "In 2003, the Oregon legislature moved the operations of the Oregon Cultural Trust to the Arts Commission, streamlining operations and making use of the Commission's expertise in grant-making, arts and cultural information and community cultural development," according to the statement.

The FBI has released a statement on its involvement with the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge situation. "The FBI recognizes that many in the community have questions about why we are here and our role in helping to end the occupation of the wildlife refuge. We are here to work closely with Sheriff Ward and our local, state and federal partners to protect the safety and welfare of this community," according to the statement. "This occupation has caused tremendous disruption and hardship for the people of Harney County, and our response has been deliberate and measured as we seek a peaceful resolution."
