Non-profit and Low-income Workgroup

Nonprofit and government partners will advise Mayor Hales, Commissioner Novick and PBOT on how to refine the non-residential portion of the Transportation User Fee (TUF) to minimize the impacts to non-profits and public institutions. This workgroup will also advise on how low-income discounts for the transportation funding proposal and discounts for existing water and sewer ratepayers can be more easily accessed by low-income Portlanders.
