SE Uplift Neighborhood Coalition Awards $27,165.00 in Community & Civic Engagement Small Grants to Over 17 Community Projects for 2020!

Now in its 13th year, the Community & Civic Engagement Small Grants program funds small but powerful community efforts aimed at increasing the number and diversity of people engaged in the community, strengthening community capacity to create social change, and increasing community impact on public decisions and community life.

We were happy to fund 17 projects, as well as select 5 additional project proposals for funding with our partner Neighborhood Coalition, the East Portland Community Office.
A huge thank you to all 37 grant applicants and our Small Grants Review Committee – Amy Bader, Lindsey Johnson, Nancy Oberschmidt, Jamie Nash, Dan Shramek and Kari Koch– for their careful consideration and funding recommendations.
