Portland is known as a great place to be an older adult. We have great transit, progressive city planning, and are well-known for being community-minded.
Join research experts and business leaders to discuss how current demographic shifts mean big things for our local economy – and your business!
Claudia Knotek of New Seasons and
Alan DeLaTorre of Portland State University’s Institute on Aging
will discuss why being “age-friendly” is good business.
Complimentary beer and snacks provided.
Hour-long presentation begins at 6pm.

Did you know that every Portland elementary school now has an arts teacher, thanks to the arts tax? Portland Arts Tax revenue restores arts & music to schools and brings the arts to life citywide.
Every Portland resident age 18 and older is expected to pay the tax of $35. But there are exemptions for individuals who are on restricted incomes. Elders in Action
is working with the City of Portland Revenue Division
to identify those people and help them apply for their exemption.
These residents may be exempt for the Arts Tax:
- You are at least 70 years old or permanently disabled AND
- Your household income is below the federal poverty guideline, OR
- Your only income is social security.
Still uncertain if you qualify?
Then call Elders in Action
at 503-235-5474 or email by
