We are ecstatic to announce that the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners has approved funding to help us build our community space, Rosewood Cafe!!
The funding will be used for construction and operations for one year. This comes at a crucial time for Rosewood, as we just received the funding from Portland Police Bureau to cover the costs of building permits and we needed the capital funds to move forward. We are also receiving a $5,000 grant from the East Portland Action Plan to help supplement the costs of coordinating this big project.
This has been an incredible journey already and it is so encouraging to have financial support as well as the partnerships to do the work in the neighborhood. Our patience and perseverance is paying off, it’s all coming together!
Today, we would especially like to thank our Multnomah County Commissioners for their support of The Rosewood Initiative!!!
