The Harbor Department provides sponsorship funds to local groups for community functions and events to help inform residents about the Port.
Community groups are asked to submit their sponsorship funding requests during two defined application periods each fiscal year.
The second call for FY 2017-18 applications was in March. The first call for FY 2018-19 will be in September 2018.
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.
