APRIL 20TH, 2023

Worksystems, the workforce development board for Multnomah and Washington counties, is launching a procurement effort to enable our Economic Opportunity Program (EOP) direct service providers to deliver a set of employment and training services to Portland residents. The procurement will benefit EOP Portland, one of the slate of programs under the larger EOP umbrella. To help inform this effort, we are hosting two upcoming information sessions where service providers can learn more about the program, the procurement campaign, and prospective partnership opportunities.

If you’re part of our community of service providers, we would love to have you join us! In addition to sharing program information, we are interested in hearing from you how the program can better serve the diverse communities of the greater Portland area.

There are two information sessions scheduled for the coming weeks:

  • Date: Friday, April 28, 2023
    • Time: 10am-11:30am
    • Registration Closed
  • Date: Tuesday, May 2, 2023
    • Time: 2:30pm-4pm
    • Registration closed

If you are unable to attend one of these sessions, we invite you to complete this very short survey:

The Economic Opportunity Program began in 2012 with funding from the City of Portland, Prosper Portland, and Worksystems in order to provide career-track training and employment services to low-income residents of Portland. Over time, EOP has been replicated to include other specific populations and funding partners, including Multnomah County’s Department of Community Justice; A Home for Everyone; the Joint Office of Homeless Services; the United States Department of Agriculture through the SNAP 50/50 Employment and Training grant; and the United States Department of Health and Human Services, through the Health Profession Opportunity Grant.
