Major federal grant for Cully Park...!! PDF Print E-mail

4.21.2015: Great news, and another welcome and humbling payoff for hard work by many, many people and organizations.

Today, we are pleased to share that we have secured a $500,000 federal grant to develop Cully Park. These funds will support development of the soccer field, and are being provided by the National Parks Service's National Land and Water Conservation Fund Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership Program. Cully Park is 1 of only 10 awards in the nation, and 1 of only 2 to receive the maximum grant amount, a recognition of the power of our community-based model for Park development.

It is important to express our great thanks to Portland Parks & Recreation and to the State of Oregon Parks & Recreation Department. Nonprofits, like Verde, cannot apply for these grants -- Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership grants are available only to state and local government agencies as well as to certain federally-recognized Indian tribes. So, please join us in thanking the City and the State for pursuing these funds for Cully Park, and for their continuing partnership and unwavering support.

4.7.2015, and the times they are a' changin...

Good news (and sad news) to share: your good friend and ours, Alyssa Kocsis, has made an exciting decision to chase some other near-future dreams, which – while generally a cool thing – means she’s unfortunately leaving Portland and Verde this summer.

So, we’re going to be recruiting/hiring a new Data Coordinator at Verde to collect, organize, analyze and share data to support Verde’s social enterprise and outreach-advocacy activities, to evaluate program performance, and to present this information to diverse audiences. We would like to have this great, new person on staff by June 1 so they can work alongside Alyssa for a little while, ensuring as smooth a handoff as possible.

Lots of great and creative work ahead for the new Data Coordinator, including leading data collection for Living Cully with our Living Cully Partners Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East, Hacienda CDC and the Native American Youth & Family Center, so please help us find some quality candidates.
