Long Beach Community Sponsorship

By Karen Robes Meeks

This month, the Port of Long Beach is looking to fund local events and programs through its community sponsorship program. Applications for funding requests must be received by March 30. Sponsorships will be awarded in mid-May by the Board of Harbor Commissioners.

“The Harbor Department provides sponsorship funds to local groups for community events and programs that help inform residents about the Port's role as an economic engine and a leader in environmental sustainability,” according to the port.

Last November, 100 port sponsorships totaling $440,650 were awarded to groups that focused on specific areas such as arts, diversity, education, environment and health, a record amount for the port.
