Port of Long Beach
Grants to California nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible regions to develop parks and open areas that reduce adverse effects of the local port industry. Applicants must submit a concept paper prior to applying. Funding is intended to support the creation of new parks, enhancement of existing parks, construction of paved areas, and provision of support facilities for open space areas in the Long Beach area.
The goal of the Grant Program is to reduce port-related impacts associated with air and water quality, noise, and traffic by funding community infrastructure projects outside the Harbor District, in the neighborhoods and corridors where these impacts are most acutely felt. Accordingly, the Grant Program funds the following project types:
The intent is to fund projects that provide buffers between sources of port-related impacts and the surrounding communities through the development of passive parks and open space. In addition, these parks must be able to help mitigate air quality and noise impacts by using trees and landscaping to block noise and to absorb particulate matter and greenhouse gases and potentially by eliminating an industrial use near the community. Elimination of an industrial use can involve redeveloping what was once a commercial lot into a passive park and open space to potentially prevent future industrial use, and help further mitigate port-related impacts. For the purposes of this solicitation, an “industrial” use includes a port-related facility, railyard, freeway, or heavily trafficked road, particularly a road with truck traffic.
Port-related impacts from freight operations include emissions, traffic, and noise from ships, trucks, trains, tugboats and terminal equipment. These impacts affect surrounding communities adjacent to the Port as well as those communities that run along the I-710 due to heavy volumes of drayage trucks traveling to a variety of businesses, terminals, warehouses, trans-loading facilities, and container rail yards. For this reason, these areas have been identified as the Priority Zone and projects completely or partially within these areas are eligible to apply.
The following projects are eligible:
