Portland Children's Levy Allocation Committee
The Portland Children's Levy was created by city voters in 2002 and renewed in 2008 and 2013 to fund proven programs throughout the city in early childhood, after school and mentoring, child abuse prevention/intervention, foster care and hunger relief. The Levy is supported through a five-year property tax that generates about $12 million a year to assist 16,000 children and their families.
The Levy is overseen by a five-member Allocation Committee that meets publicly to make funding decisions. It is composed of one Portland City Commissioner, one Multnomah County Commissioner and one citizen member appointed by the City, County and Portland Business Alliance respectively.
