About the Grant Programs
The Port Community Mitigation Grant Programs are designed to improve community health by lessening the impacts of Port-related air pollution, and to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The community programs primarily address air pollution risks to vulnerable groups such as children and seniors. Examples of projects that are eligible for grants include air-filtration systems at schools and daycare centers, educational health-outreach programs for families and seniors, renewable energy projects and energy-efficiency projects.
