Port community grants workshop to explain revisions to programs designed to reduce air pollution

The Port of Long Beach will host a public workshop at 6pm on Thursday, July 26 to discuss revisions to two of its grant programs that address the health impacts of port-related air pollution.
Potential grant applicants and others are invited to attend. The workshop will take place at the Miller Family Health Education Center, 3820 Cherry Ave.
Attendees will learn about possible updates to the guidelines for two Port community grant programs: Schools and Related Sites, and Health Care and Senior Facilities. The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Grant Program will not be part of this workshop.
This meeting is being offered in advance of future grant application opportunities. While there is no call for grant applications at this time, these changes will impact future grant opportunities that are expected later this year.
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 including children and seniors. Examples of projects that have received grants include air-filtration systems at schools and daycare centers, and health outreach programs for families and seniors.
Those who can’t attend the workshop but have comments or questions about the grant programs may email grants@polb.com .
