Every year, the port gives to local programs and activities that bolster economic development and tourism in the port district. This year, the commission has set aside $20,000 toward the effort.
Organizations must apply by 5 p.m. on May 14 electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awardees are expected to be announced in early June, but are conditional approvals in light of COVID-19 restrictions. If an event is cancelled, the port is allowed to take back the funding and give it to another eligible event or program, officials say.
