Long Beach Community Grants

By Karen Robes Meeks

About 130 groups aimed at supporting the arts, the environment and historic preservation have been awarded a total of $463,750 in community sponsorship grants from the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners.

They include the Friends of the Los Angeles River, the Long Beach Public Library Foundation, Su Casa’s Gala of Light and Willmore City Heritage Association’s Winter in Willmore Snow Day.

“Supporting organizations that make our diverse city a great place to live and work is just one of the ways the Harbor Commission seeks to contribute to our community,” said Board of Harbor Commissioners President Tracy Egoscue. “We’re proud that we have the opportunity to interact with the public and bring awareness of the important role the Port plays in this region.”
