2022 Community Resilience and Capacity Building Grant

Information
Community Resilience Grant
The 2022 Community Resilience and Capacity Building Grant is focused on strengthening partnerships with community-based organizations to address the disparate impacts of disasters.

Background

The Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) is excited to announce the community resilience and capacity building grant in the amount of $300,000.

In 2020 and 2021, the City of Portland responded to COVID with a variety of programs intended to support communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic emergency. These efforts demonstrated the value of working with community-based organizations to better serve Portland’s diverse communities. This grant will build on successful elements of the City’s pandemic response to support recovery and resilience-building in Portland, in continued partnership with CBOs.

The grant is focused on strengthening partnerships with community-based organizations to address the disparate impacts of disasters, and aims to:

  • Increase disaster resilience in households in Portland that face disparate risks, focusing on resilience in the face of climate-change-induced and/or earthquake risks.
  • Strengthen the ability of CBOs to serve their community during an emergency.
