Long Beach Holds Port Grant Workshops

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Long Beach will host workshops for local organizations who want to apply for the port’s Community Grants Program. The program seeks to fund projects providing park space, enhancing energy efficiency and taking on indoor air pollution.

Proposed projects must be located within the program’s priority zone, which represents the area most affected by port operations. The zone stretches from downtown Long Beach north along 710 freeway and includes portions of Wilmington, Carson, Compton and Paramount.

Two workshops will take place on March 13 in the Board Room of the port’s Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach, CA 90815.

The 1 p.m. workshop will focus on indoor air filtration and energy-efficiency projects, while the 2 p.m. workshop will cover parks and open space projects.
