Neighborhood Small Grants Info Sessions

Calling all dreamers, makers, and world-changers: do you have a small but powerful idea for strengthening your neighborhood? Perhaps you want to revive a forgotten city tradition? Paint an intersection mural? Host a tenant organizing workshop?

SE Uplift Wants to Help You Make It Happen!

SE Uplift invites ordinary Portlanders like you to shape and create your neighborhood by applying for a Neighborhood Small Grant. Grants range from $300-$4,000 and are intended to spur community efforts aimed at connecting and engaging residents, building community capacity, improving neighborhood livability, or increasing community impact on public decision making. Through this grant you can tap into your creativity and leadership skills to develop projects that improve your community.
