The Harbor Department provides sponsorship funds to nonprofit organizations for community functions and events to help inform the public about the Port.
Organizations are asked to submit their sponsorship funding requests during two defined application periods each fiscal year.
The first call for FY 2018-19 applications was in September. The second call for FY 2018-19 will be in March 2019.
The scheduled twice-a-year call for sponsorships will give stakeholders a clear process to follow and help in their planning, and a way for the Port to evaluate where its funding will have the greatest impact.
