Community Investment Grant Program

The Port of Los Angeles Community Investment Grant Program creates a funding opportunity for small to large community events, programs and projects that benefit the Port community and promote the goals of the Los Angeles Harbor Department. It is the Port's goal to partner with organizations that have similar interests and goals, creating mutually supportive relationships. Funds come from the Harbor Department’s annual budget – self-supported entirely from shipping and lease revenues rather than 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.
