I would like to thank the Board of Harbor Commissioners, Port Staff, and especially Community Grant Advisory members Silissa Uriarte-Smith and Loara Cadavona for working with my staff to ensure that our local First District schools were supported.

An additional $10 Million will be granted to healthcare greenhouse gas programs in the coming months. For more information about the program, please click here.
