The Port of Long Beach (Port) is seeking community feedback on priority projects to be solicited in 2022, 2023, and 2024. Feedback from this survey will directly inform staff’s funding recommendation for 2022 to the Board of Harbor Commissioners, and will assist the Port in longer term planning for future years. This survey will close on December 23, 2021. For more information on our Community Grants Program and the different project categories, please visit our website at
