Community Investment Grant Program


The Port of Los Angeles Community Investment Grant Program creates funding opportunities for small to large community events, programs and projects that benefit surrounding harbor communities and promote the goals of the Los Angeles Harbor Department. The Port's goal is to partner with nonprofit organizations that have similar interests and goals, creating mutually supportive relationships. Funds come from the City of Los Angeles Harbor Department’s annual budget, which is entirely self-supported from shipping and lease revenues, not tax-payers. The overall program funds, as well as its component categories, vary each fiscal year. There is no guarantee that funds allocated in any one fiscal year will be the same as another – either for the overall program, component categories or successful applicants. Grant applicants must reapply each fiscal year.
 

The grant application period for FY 2022/23 is now closed.
