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.
