Affiliates & PartnersThe Alliance works with many private and public partners and houses affiliate organizations to maintain a strong business community as well as a vibrant region and central city, including Dowtown Portland Clean & Safe and the Pacific Northwest International Trade Association (PNITA).
Downtown Portland Clean & Safe
The Downtown Portland Clean & Safe District provides extraordinary essential services to the people, places and businesses within a core 213-block area of our unique city. Operating since 1988, the district is one of the oldest, largest and most successful enhanced service districts in the nation.
Property owners within the district pay a fee to raise money that supplements publicly-financed services for neighborhood improvement including cleaning, security, market research and retail advocacy.
The Downtown Portland Clean & Safe District funds:
- Downtown Portland Clean & Safe Program, which provides cleaning, security and visitor information.
- Downtown Retail Program, which focuses on market research, retail advocacy, and marketing and communications.

Pacific Northwest International Trade Association (PNITA) is an affiliate organization of the Portland Business Alliance, greater Portland’s chamber of commerce.
