The Creative Engagement Grant program funds the creation of original neighborhood projects that inspire Portlanders to think about and engage with their community in new ways.
At the core of this new grant program is our desire to inspire and support innovative strategies for engaging our communities in civic life and promoting neighborhood association participation. We hope to get people more deeply involved in their communities, amplify what it means to be a neighbor, and ultimately reanimate Portland’s Neighborhood Association system.
The Creative Engagement Grant will enable neighborhood associations to push the scope and scale of their activities, develop and pursue non-traditional partnerships and engage with their communities in inventive and meaningful ways.
