Amy helped guide our Community Development Block Grant program for many years, developing systems and creating a process that kept our federal partners satisfied with our management of the funds. At the same time, she helped the city prioritize its goals and needs for the funds to ensure that they provided maximum benefit to Portland residents and businesses. Amy is a true community development professional.
