The Port of Long Beach will accept applications from 1 March to 1 April for its Community Sponsorship Program.

By applying for sponsorship, non-profit organisations have the opportunity to funds events and activities that help inform residents about the port while making Long Beach a better place to live and work.

Applications are judged on how they can help the port inform the community of its critical role as an economic engine and jobs creator.

Last September, in the first call of the 2019 fiscal year, the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners awarded 130 sponsorships totalling US$463,750 to community organisations.

The groups receiving funding represented a wide cross-section of areas and supported causes such as the arts, environment, social justice and historic preservation.

Applicants are advised to plan ahead for their events — after the application period closes, it will take about 45 days before recommendations will be sent to the Board of Harbor Commissioners for a decision.

It is expected that funding will be awarded in mid-May.
