About the Grants Program
The Community Grants Program is an unprecedented effort to lessen the Port of Long Beach’s impacts on the community. Over the next 12 to 15 years, we plan to invest $46.4 million toward community-based projects that reduce our impacts on air quality, traffic, noise, and water quality.
The investment adds to the $17.4 million the Port of Long Beach has awarded to community groups since 2009, for a total of almost $65 million. No other U.S. seaport has voluntarily committed as much funding for community-based environmental mitigation.
