Portland’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program funds a wide variety of community projects in Portland’s seven neighborhood districts each year. The goal of program is to provide neighborhood and community organizations the opportunity to build community, attract new and diverse members, and sustain those already involved.
Portland’s neighborhood coalition offices will be giving out approximately $94,000 for community projects to be completed in 2013.
Grant application and selection will be administered by Portland’s seven neighborhood coalition offices during fall 2012 for projects to be completed in 2013.
You need to apply directly to the district coalition office for the area of Portland in which your project/event will take place. While the overall goals and selection criteria are consistent across the city, each of the seven neighborhood coalitions has the flexibility to include additional selection criteria and define its own selection process.
