From 2008 through 2014, the Oregon IDA Initiative worked with the Regional Research Institute at Portland State University to evaluate the impacts of our work. PSU’s evaluation used both quantitative and qualitative data, including surveys and interviews of participants, to assess our impact. Since 2015, Neighborhood Partnerships has used in-house expertise to continue the evaluation processes established by PSU.
