Venture out this spring and summer

April 2, 2015

Spring and summer are great times to explore Portland’s eclectic neighborhood business districts. 

Venture Portland just awarded $31,500 for 11 Spring/Summer Grant Projects in Portland’s neighborhood business districts around the city.    

Many of the projects focus on fun, large-scale shopping events and activities, including street fairs.  All of the projects are directly tied to our local economy, and the grants will leverage an additional $137,563 in private business district investment!

Shopping locally, especially in the sun, isn’t just fun - it’s also beneficial to Portland’s economy.  For every dollar spent at a local business, 70% stays in our community. 

Check out Venture Portland’s website for more information and a list of Spring/Summer grant awardees.
