Repair Voucher Program
Overview of the Pilot Repair Voucher Program:
The purpose of the this test voucher program is to:
*Spread repair culture
*Reduce the financial barriers to repairing belongings
*Prioritize communities of color and queer communities
*Grow the repair economy in Portland
How the Pilot Repair Voucher Program works:
*Initially, Repair PDX is partnering with two repair businesses: JD’s Shoe Repair and Hidden Opulence.
*For each business, there will be 50 vouchers available for the amount of $40 towards the cost of the repair.
*Only one voucher may be used for a single repair and if the cost of the repair is greater than $40, the customer is required to pay the difference
*Folks will be selected using criteria from the purpose statements, and selected randomly to receive a voucher.
What the Pilot Repair Voucher Program is:
Through a generous grant by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, we are able to begin a Pilot Repair Voucher Program. Together with community partners and repair businesses, Repair PDX will begin testing out offering repair vouchers in 2022 on a limited basis.
