Industrial District Group Grants

Portland’s Industrial Districts play a critical role in the local, regional and state economy and are comprised of a strong concentration of traded sector companies, bringing outside revenues back to the local economy, including more than 3,500 businesses that provide approximately 100,000 jobs and more than $2 billion annually in wages.

Venture Portland understands the unique characteristics of its industrial district members and utilized one-time-only dollars to dedicate an Industrial District Group Grant during the Spring/Summer 2014 grant cycle.  Applicants were able to apply for up to $5,000 to implement a group project benefiting all participating districts.
