Venture Portland Grants

April 7, 2016

Last week, Venture Portland awarded $34,000 to our wonderful neighborhood business districts for 13 Spring/Summer Grant Projects.

The projects include delightful summer Street Fairs, building dynamic new websites, the Festival of Nations, and much more. The grants are expected to leverage over $220,000 in private business investment – that’s nearly a 7-to-1 match!

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 a local small business, nearly 70 cents stays in Portland’s local economy.

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