In 2004, Portland launched the Economic Opportunity Initiative, grounded in best practices and driven by measurable outcomes to help propel people out of poverty. With neighborhoods quickly revitalizing, citizen input focused our efforts on improving individual income and reaching residents who had been left behind.

Their goal is to increase the income and assets of low-income participants by at least 25% within three years of their enrollment in the Initiative. The Initiative supports a coordinated portfolio of 34 workforce and micro-enterprise projects for adults and youth ages 18 to 25. Each project is tailored to a specific group of participants, is intensive, long-term, and provides comprehensive supports to give participants a real shot at success.
