Los Angeles Community Grants

By Karen Robes Meeks

Up to $1 million in grants will be given by the Port of Los Angeles toward events and other efforts that benefit the Los Angeles waterfront and surrounding communities.

Local organizations who are interested in the port’s Community Investment Grants Program can attend upcoming workshops to gather additional information:
  • April 2 at Banning’s Landing Community Center in Wilmington, and
  • April 3 at the Port of Los Angeles headquarters in San Pedro
The grants, funded by income generated by the port, are awarded to activities that help promote:
  • Maritime and port-related workforce development and education;
  • Sustainable practices aimed at preservation and conservation of natural resources in the Port environment; or
  • LA Waterfront, its history and culture
The application deadline is 4 p.m. on May 6.
