Outreach Sponsorship Program

The Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (DFR) is pleased to announce an innovative sponsorship program for organizations that engage in financial empowerment work. The sponsorship awards are intended to help consumers in underserved communities gain increased awareness of DFR's services and resources and develop the capacity to make good decisions about insurance and financial services.

In its inaugural year of 2023, the five organizations receiving $25,000 sponsorship awards are:

  • Bienestar, based in Washington County, which builds housing, hope, and community for the well-being of Latinx, immigrants, and all families in need.
  • Bradley Angle in Multnomah County, which serves all people affected by domestic violence. About 80 percent of its participants identify as being Black, Indigenous, and people of color, with more than half identifying as Black/African American.
  • Centro Cultural, a home for Latino cultures, serves the needs of its diverse community by promoting personal growth and empowerment.
  • Nixyáawii Community Financial Services (NCFS), which serves the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. NCFS' mission is to improve the financial well-being of individuals and families in the Umatilla Indian Reservation Community through loans and development services.
  • Warm Springs Community Action Team (WSCAT), which serves the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and the Burns Paiute Tribe. WSCAT's mission is to promote community development in Warm Springs by empowering individuals and groups to realize their potential, become self-reliant, and effect positive change for themselves, their families, and their community.

DFR is committed to supporting this sponsorship program for at least three years. If your organization is conducting financial empowerment work in Oregon and actively serving underserved communities, we encourage you to apply for year two of the program. Information for the 2024 contract year should be available on this website during the last quarter of 2023.
