Everyone in the metro region benefits when all of greater Portland’s communities can reach their full potential. 2040 Planning and Development grants help communities implement our region’s long-range vision, create new housing and commercial opportunities, revitalize town centers, develop employment areas, reduce barriers to equitable housing and plan for future infrastructure and development in new urban areas.
The program, formerly known as the Community Planning and Development Grants Program, has been in place since 2006. Prior grant cycles have awarded over $24 million to fund more than 100 projects across the region. The grants are funded by a regional excise tax on certain construction projects in greater Portland.
