PCRI Receives Enterprise Grant

June 4, 2013 · by pcriadmin · Featured, PCRI

PCRI is delighted to receive an Organizational Sustainability grant from Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. (Enterprise).  This grant will enable PCRI to improve the quantity and quality of data collected, efficiency of data entry, and quality of reporting from our property management and accounting software system.  In turn, these improvements will allow PCRI to serve our residents, funding partners and vendors better and more efficiently.

“This grant came at a great time,” said Maxine Fitzpatrick, PCRI’s Executive Director (pictured, with Enterprise’s Amanda Saul).  “We’ve been transitioning with the growth from our acquisition of the Albina Community Development Portfolio, and this is exactly what we need to move forward and better serve the community.”

The Enterprise grant builds on a recently completed portfolio inspection and analysis project funded by the Oregon Department of Housing and Community Services (OHCS).  The data provided by the state-funded project will be synthesized into PCRI software system where it can be fully utilized for reporting and decision-making purposes.

This grant will also support enhanced training of staff on PCRI’s software system and updated, detailed documentation in order to capture the complexities associated with the management of PCRI’s scattered site, primarily single family rental portfolio.  This documentation will help ensure current and future user integrity with well-documented procedures that transcend users and maximize employee operational proficiencies.

PCRI extends our sincere thanks to Enterprise for their support as we eagerly begin work on these projects.
