In February 2019, Portland City Council unanimously voted to approve an Enhanced Services District in the Central Eastside. The Central Eastside’s Enhanced Services District is known as Central Eastside Together.
As a part of Central Eastside Together we are awarding grants to projects within the Central Eastside Industrial District. Grants are available to community organizations providing services in district that support Central Eastside Together’s core values and goals listed below. All grant funds must be used for projects in the Central Eastside Industrial District.
Our 2019 – 2020 Grant Cycle marks the launch of the grant program. This grant program will continue at least through the next 3 years when Central Eastside Together goes back up for election in front of Portland City Council. Grants will be available annually based on a July – June fiscal year.
