The East Portland Action Plan, the Centennial Community Association and the Centennial Neighborhood Emergency Team are calling together small community organizations to discuss opportunities for funding Community Resiliency Projects through the Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund (PCEF). During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing racial justice protests, we have learned that action taken at the neighborhood level can help our community stay connected and focused on a thriving East Portland. We will discuss how to establish a coalition of groups to apply for a PCEF Planning Grant in the categories of Green Infrastructure and Innovation.
What is PCEF?
In the face of climate change and federal inaction, PCEF offers a community-led vision grounded in justice and equity, that builds citywide resilience and opportunity for clean energy. Learn more at portland.gov/bps/cleanenergy
The purpose of PCEF planning grants is to support eligible applicants to develop high quality projects that are designed to achieve the climate and justice goals of the program. Planning grants can cover a wide range of activities including, but not limited to, time for coordination and collaboration, research and project development, and hiring technical consultants to provide project plan recommendations. Planning grants are intended to be used to develop projects that could be funded by future PCEF grants. However, an award of a planning grant does not ensure future PCEF funding.
