Grants for our neighborhood business districts

This week, Venture Portland awarded $36,000 to our neighborhood business districts for 12 fall and winter grant projects.


The projects include hosting holiday events, building dynamic new websites, creating track and field-themed events during the World Indoor Track and Field Championships in March, and more!


Nick is proud to serve as Council liaison to Venture Portland, which is focused on investing in the smart, strategic growth of our neighborhood small business districts.


Our neighborhood small businesses are the backbone of our community. They bring character and strength to our neighborhoods, create jobs, and encourage economic growth. For every dollar spent at a local small business, nearly 70 cents stays in Portland’s local economy.


Check out Venture Portland’s website to learn more about Portland’s great business districts, and for the list of grant awardees.
