Sponsorship and Advertising Program

September, 2022 Sponsorship and Advertising Program Update:

Due to staff and vehicle capacity, COIC is limiting the program to community and agency partners only, with a one year minimum contract for advertising. 

The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC) Board of Directors approved a new Sponsorship Policy in 2018 to enhance relationships with community partners and to increase COIC’s ability to deliver services to the community. COIC/CET is now accepting sponsorship applications via the downloadable form listed below. Please email your signed and completed application to and allow up to two weeks for COIC to review applications.
