By Karen Robes Meeks

North Long Beach organizations can apply for grants for park space, air filtration and energy efficiency projects through the Port of Long Beach, California’s Community Grants Program.

A workshop presentation for potential applicants will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on March 21 at the District 9 Field Office, 6509 Gundry Ave., Long Beach 90805.

The program was created to help communities most impacted by port-related operations, with a focus on community health, facility improvements and community infrastructure.

Under this program, the port has awarded in excess of $8 million to local organizations. The Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners has authorized more than $46 million toward the program.
