The Portland Development Commision has granted $75,000 to help renovate the new Health Center facility.
PDC GRANT BOOSTS HEALTH CENTER
MARCH 9, 2017
The Portland Development Commission (PDC) has approved a $100,000 grant for facilities improvements at PACS. This includes $75,000 towards renovations of the new Health Center facility, which will expand medical care, and add dental and ophthalmology. The other $25,000 will be used to make renovations to reduce crowding and improve access in the PACS Food Pantry. This will be done when the existing Health Clinic vacates its current space, freeing up room for pantry improvements. PACS received these PDC funds via the city of Portland's urban renewal efforts in the Gateway area and the Halsey-Weidler business corridor.
PACS now has just under $75,000 left to raise towards this effort. If you would like to help us reach that goal you can donate online here. Be sure to choose "Health/Dental Startup" under the "Fund" item on the donation form. You can also mail donations to 11020 NE Halsey St, Portland OR 97220. Be sure to designate your gift to "Health Center Startup".
