Air Filtration Projects
Community Health Programs
In order to be eligible for RFP CH-17-01, applicants must have submitted a Concept Paper and received an invitation to submit a full proposal.
The Port of Long Beach held public workshops on April 19 for the first round of a new, $46.4 million program created to help communities most affected by goods movement in San Pedro Bay. Webcasts of the workshops and the presentations are now available online.
Two workshops about this year’s call for applications cover health programs for asthma and air filters for schools, day-care centers and other facilities:
A post-solicitation follow up workshop was held May 10 for the Community Health Program; a follow-up on the Air Filtration Program will be held May 25 at 2 p.m. at the Port's Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach.
The solicitations are part of the first round of the Port Community Grants Program. The funding will be distributed over the next 12 to 15 years and adds to the $18.2 million awarded under a previous grant program, making the total commitment to the community almost $65 million. No other port authority in the country has voluntarily committed as much money to community-based mitigation.
