NEWS RELEASE

For Immediate Release    

Paul Leistner, Office of Neighborhood Involvement

503-823-5284, paul.leistner@portlandoregon.gov

City of Portland program to distribute $100,000 in Neighborhood Small Grants for projects in 2018.

Grant proposals will be accepted through Portland’s seven neighborhood District Coalition offices.

 

Portland, Oregon. The City of Portland, Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) and Portland’s seven neighborhood District Coalitions are excited to offer another year of the City of Portland’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program. This year, $100,000 is available to fund projects by neighborhood associations and community-based organizations. Projects must be completed in 2018. Grants are awarded on a completive basis. Applicants should apply through the neighborhood District Coalition office for the district in which their project will take place. Each neighborhood District Coalition manages its own application process. Check with each District Coalition office for their specific application requirements and deadlines. More information and a map of the districts is available at:  https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/43120.

Proposed grant projects must meet one or more of the following goals:

  • Increase the number and diversity of people who are engaged in their communities and neighborhoods.
  • Strengthen community and neighborhood capacity to build community leadership, identify, skills, relationships and/or partnerships.
  • Increase community and neighborhood impact on public decisions and community life.

A high priority for this grant program is engagement of historically under-represented and under-served communities. These include: people of color, immigrants and refugees, low-income individuals and families, youth, people who are houseless, people with disabilities, and people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ).

“ONI is pleased to announce another year of the City of Portland’s very popular Neighborhood Small Grants Program. This program is a great example of how small amounts of money can unleash tremendous creativity in our community and leverage resources and benefits far beyond the funds provided. These grants also help community members build important skills and relationships that can continue to benefit them and their communities for years to come,” commented City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, the city commissioner in charge of ONI.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant are strongly encouraged to attend the grant workshop offered by the neighborhood District Coalition for the district in which they are applying. Each neighborhood District Coalition manages its own application process. Workshop participants will learn about current funding priorities, get tips on how to prepare a successful grant proposal, receive feedback on project ideas, and get to network with other community members.
