Venture Portland Awards $34,250 in Neighborhood Business District Grants

This week, Venture Portland (VP) awarded $34,250 to fund twelve upcoming projects city wide.

Small businesses are the backbone of our community. They bring character and jobs to our neighborhoods, and Nick is proud to serve as Council Liaison to Venture Portland.

VP focuses on investing in the smart, strategic growth of our neighborhood small business districts. Projects funded by the grants range from retail-focused holiday events to dynamic district websites and maps.

When you shop local, $68 of every $100 spent stays in our local economy. Check out the complete list of activities here and support your local small businesses!
