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