Age-friendly Business Awards

Applications open April 30th for the inaugural Age-Friendly Business Awards, sponsored by the City of Portland in partnership with the Age-Friendly Portland & Multnomah County collaborative.

This new recognition program, being launched during National Small Business Week, consists of two different awards for Portland businesses and organizations.

  • The Age-Friendly Business Award recognizes businesses with commitment and demonstrated business practices that best serve older adults in Portland.
  • The Age-Smart Employer Award recognizes businesses with policies and practices that benefit older workers. Both awards will be given in three categories determined by business size.

Award winners will be celebrated at a breakfast ceremony at Portland City Hall on October 31, 2018, followed by recognition at the Portland City Council meeting that day.
