From Central Northeast Neighbors

The Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) and Central Northeast Neighbors are excited to offer another year of the City of Portland’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program. We invite Neighborhood Associations and community-based organizations in Portland to apply.

The goals of this grant program are to:

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

This year a total of $8,000 is available to neighborhood and community organizations in the Central Northeast Neighbors coalition area. Grant proposals may range from $1,000 to $2,000.
