SAN PEDRO, Calif. – Mar. 1, 2022 – The Port of Los Angeles has released application information and details about its FY 2022/23 Community Investment Grant Program. The program funds initiatives, programs and events that benefit the communities of the LA Harbor, promote the LA Waterfront and help support the Port’s goals related to international trade, the environment, sustainability, public safety and security.
Over the last nine years, the grants program has awarded $8 million in funding to a total of 262 local organizations. Grants are funded through the Port’s annual budget, and are entirely self-supported from shipping and lease revenues, not taxpayer dollars.

The Port anticipates awarding a total of $1 million in grants, inclusive of large grants made in FY 2021/22 now in their second year. Applications are due Monday, May 9 at 4 p.m. Grant applicants must reapply each fiscal year.
The Port has scheduled an online Zoom workshop for interested applicants on Thursday, March 31 at 6 p.m. PST. Applicants must be non-profit organizations tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3), and provide documentation of their exempt status at the time of application.
