INTRODUCING (drum roll please...) 
The Creative Engagement Grants
SE Uplift is thrilled to announce the launch of our new Creative Engagement Grant Program. These grants will fund the creation of original neighborhood association projects that inspire Portlanders to think about and engage with their community in new ways.
Together we can re-imagine what community engagement looks like. Forget tired tri-folds and think chalk board walls, photo booths, and participatory art installations. 

Donate Today

We've set a goal of raising a total of $5,000 for our new Creative Engagement Grant Program by January 1, 2014. We're already half way there. So join us in celebrating, discovering and creating our neighborhoods!Together, we can make it happen.

November Addition

"Why wasn't I notified about it?" This is a question we frequently hear from neighbors when they learn about new development occurring in their neighborhood. Portland's land use notification rules have frustrated and befuddled community members for ages. The good news is that there are a few techniques you can use to learn about proposed developments before they happen, regardless of notification.

Neighborhood Advocacy Powered By Maps

Maps are powerful. They can reveal patterns, illuminate relationships, and communicate complex information. By providing unprecedented access to local geographically based data, the Regional Equity Atlas 2.0 enables community stakeholders to bring legitimacy to local perspectives and generate political will through mapping. 

Get Ready, Get Set, Plant!


All that good, squishy soil means it's tree-planting time, and Friends of Trees is getting ready to hit the ground in southeast Portland. Residents should sign up now to get trees for their street or yard in order to meet deadlines leading up to their neighborhood planting day.
