2019 Certification Report

News Article
Portland first applied for What Works Cities certification in 2019, achieving 33% of the 45 certification criteria.

Although Portland did not meet the threshold for certification in 2019, the Certification Report provides useful information on the City's strengths around use and management of data, as well as guidance around several areas of opportunity. This report has served as the basis for the current project team's workplan and for several of our most recent technical assistance projects with WWC partners.
