Grants Available for East Portland Projects

Calling all East Portland projects! The East Portland Community Office's (EPCO) "Small Grants Reimbursement Program" supports community building activities in East Portland.

The Small Grants Reimbursement Program is available for East Portland organizations and groups. Requested amounts may range from $2,900 to $4,900. Funds will be eligible for reimbursement for programming expenses starting July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.

The Small Grants Program prioritizes engagement of communities historically underrepresented and underserved such as elders, youth, people with disabilities, communities of color, immigrants and refugees, low-income, and LGTBQIA+ people. All are welcome to apply. 

To qualify, your project must meet at least one of our program’s goals:

  • Increase the number of people who are involved and engaged in their communities;
  • Strengthen community capacity through, for example, leadership development, skills   building, fostering teamwork and/or partnerships, and community building;
  • Increase community impact on public decisions.

Grant applications are due Monday, Nov. 8. EPCO will hold two information sessions to review application and answer any questions. 

Info Sessions: Thursday, Oct. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 25 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Both sessions are held virtually over ZOOM. To register for one of the sessions, please email
