Supplemental Grants

Venture Portland is committed to helping business districts strengthen the economic competitiveness of their commercial corridor by providing in-depth information on community demographics, market strength, lease rates, business and economic trends, store-front activation and district evolution.

Member business districts were able to apply for $1,000 to implement ‘Assessing Value: What’s Your Business District Worth?’; a community conversation featuring an expert panel to take place in their district. Business districts identified up to 3 issues that their district is currently facing for the panel to address during a public forum for businesses, property owners and residents in their district.
