The Port of Long Beach is inviting organizations that may have an energy efficiency or solar power generation project to two workshops seeking to help groups apply for the port’s Community Grants Program.

The port is seeking organizations whose proposals help sensitive populations such as seniors, pregnant women, children and people with asthma or chronic illnesses.

The Community Grants Program funding is given to groups that help communities most affected by port-related operations. Since 2009, the port has set aside more than $65 million toward this effort, of which $36.5 million has been committed.

The workshop focused on applying for a grant for an energy efficiency project is expected to take place at 3 p.m. on Sept. 13 (Registration link). The workshop aimed at grant funding for solar power generation grants is set for 2 p.m. on Sept. 27 (Registration link). For more information, visit
