  5. At least eight grants ranging from $5,001 to $15,000 will be awarded for small projects that build climate resilience, earthquake resilience, or mental health resilience.
  6. At least three grants ranging from $15,001 to $50,000 will be awarded for projects that build climate resilience, earthquake resilience, or mental health resilience.
  7. The Portland Bureau of Emergency Management is seeking authority to issue the grants based on the criteria in Exhibit A and the recommendations provided by the selection committee referred to above.
