Description

About Neighborhood Partnerships

Neighborhood Partnerships (NP) works across Oregon to advance our vision of equitable opportunity and outcomes for all Oregonians. Neighborhood Partnerships is a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that sits at the intersection of program delivery and policy change. We work collaboratively to catalyze and manage research-backed initiatives, systems, and policy changes that help Oregonians achieve housing stability and build financial security. We work as advocates, connectors, and program managers to increase resources, improve public policy, and spark innovation and collaboration.


Neighborhood Partnerships (NP) manages the Oregon Individual Development Account (IDA) Initiative on behalf of Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS). The Initiative sparks resilient communities by building financial capability, promoting strong savings skills and inspiring bigger dreams. With an IDA, Oregonians with low incomes have their savings for an education, home, small business or other investment matched by funds generated through an Oregon state tax credit.


NP has an organizational commitment to equity and inclusion, and to ensuring that our work advances equitable outcomes regardless of race, ethnicity, and other identities. NP is committed to pursuing effective strategies and devoting dedicated time and resources at every level of the organization to address disparities based on identity and to apply an equity lens to all decisions, programs, and policies.
