Expanding opportunities in America’s cities


Portland, Oregon



EcoDistricts, formerly the Portland Sustainability Institute, provides the people, tools, services and training to help cities and urban-development practitioners create neighborhoods that are resilient, vibrant, resource-efficient and just. This two-year grant funds the annual EcoDistricts Summit for urban sustainability leaders, the EcoDistricts Incubator for training municipal and community-development leaders and the Target Cities pilot program to integrate the EcoDistricts framework into revitalization projects in six cities.
