Business Equity Program
Prosper Portland’s construction and contracting business practices are designed to improve the success rate of local small businesses and support the growth of construction and development firms owned by women and people of color. The Business Equity Program is a commitment to creating equitable outcomes by ensuring that Prosper Portland’s contracts provide opportunities for minority, women and emerging small businesses. The overarching goal is to reduce obstacles to lasting prosperity by promoting economic growth, building capacity and expanding competition in the marketplace. The program has specific requirements for agency-supported hard-construction projects as well as for real property sold to a private party involving hard-construction costs.
