Prosper Portland focuses on building an equitable economy, based on four cornerstones: growing family-wage jobs, advancing opportunities for prosperity, collaborating with partners for an equitable city, and creating vibrant neighborhoods and communities. Each year, Prosper Portland seeks proposals from community-based organizations for projects that foster vibrant and healthy neighborhoods and improve the prosperity of area residents and businesses.

OCOM recently received a Community Livability Grant from Prosper Portland to be used toward facility improvement projects at the college, including rehabilitation of the eco-roof, improvements to the fifth-floor deck area, and increasing the efficiency of the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system.
