The Office of Equity and Human Rights has asked our office to administer the Accommodations Fund for the Fiscal Year 2018-19.
The Accommodations Fund will be accessible to Civic Life programs and partner agencies, with a primary focus on the community for the first 6 months. The funds are available for accommodations in fiscal year 2018-2019 (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019).
Requests will be reviewed, and a decision of approval or denial will be made within two weeks of the request. At the time of approval, it will be determined how the requestor would like to be paid. Payment will primarily be processed as a reimbursement through SAP to vendors with the City. If a requester’s organization is not a vendor with the City, they will either need to become a vendor or ask another organization who is (ex: neighborhood coalition) to accept the reimbursement on their behalf. If the requestor uses a vendor that is already registered with the City, we can submit a payment to them directly with a proper invoice. Payments will be processed within a month after the invoice is received.
All requests must be made by April 30th, 2019 and all invoices must be submitted by May 31st, 2019. Invoices must be made out to Office of Community & Civic Life or the City of Portland.
