The national THRIVE Act was developed by the U.S. Green New Deal Network, aiming to “Transform, Heal, and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy,”—i.e. THRIVE—through a range of investments to rebuild the U.S. economy. It was introduced into Congress in April 2021. This report describes the impact the THRIVE Act would have on Oregon’s 4th congressional district. We estimate the overall level of job creation resulting from the 4th district receiving its proportionate share of the overall national THRIVE budget. We also describe some specific projects that would be financed through THRIVE that would benefit the 4th district, in areas such as solar energy installation, raising energy efficiency standards in the district’s public buildings, and expanding paid client-employed home-based care for the elderly within the district.
