Economic Development Subcommittee Meeting

East Portland Action Plan

Economic Development Subcommittee Meeting

We will have a presentation from East Portland Resilience Coalition member James Metoyer, Owner of Advanced Energy Inspections, L.L.C.

James will provide an update about his work to develop certificate training programs with EarthAdvantage, and Advanced Energy Inspections to create a career pathway to green infrastructure and healthy homes jobs. James has been a key figure in promoting and developing new opportunities for young people in green technologies and in promotion of healthy homes for East Portland residents.  James is working with at least two organizations that have just won PCEF grants for Workforce Development projects.

Please read more about how PCEF grants will be improving Workforce Development opportunities for East Portland residents in the PCEF report below.
