Portland offers cash to attract artists
PORTLAND (AP) — If cheap rent, abundant coffee shops and a bustling night life aren’t enough to attract young people to Portland, the city council is adding something extra — cash.
As part of Mayor Vera Katz’s “Creative Economy Initiative,” the city on Tuesday announced it will award grants of $750 to attract and retain young artists and entrepreneurs.

The city set aside $10,000 for the grants, which will be awarded to people between the ages of 24 and 34, said Rosie Williams, project manager for the initiative.
