May 6 is the deadline to apply for a Port of Long Beach grant to fund air filtration and energy efficiency projects in port-adjacent neighborhoods. Projects serving downtown Long Beach and communities along the 710 Freeway, parts of Wilmington, Carson, Compton and Paramount will be considered.

The funding, which comes from the Facilities Improvement portion of the Community Grants Program, supports projects such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, stand-alone air filtration systems, high-performance filter upgrades and replacements, register-based air filters, as well as boiler and chiller replacement, efficient lighting, insulation, and window/door replacement and sealing, according to the port.
