2021 – Airport Noise Ordinance Neighborhood Impact Fund

DEADLINE: All applications must be received on or before 5 PM on Thursday, October 1, 2021

(Content updated on 10/12/2020 for October 2021:)
The Airport Noise Ordinance Neighborhood Impact Fund was created with fines paid by airlines who have violated noise restrictions at the Long Beach Airport. These charitable dollars can be used to fund projects that improve or benefit communities impacted by airplane noise from the Long Beach Airport. The philosophy is residents who live under the flight paths are the natural beneficiaries of these noise penalties.

Examples of worthy projects include public area improvements that benefit the impacted residents, community gatherings, neighborhood festivals, and nonprofit programming benefiting residents within the flight path, just to name a few. The more people benefitting in an area under the flight path, the better. Projects that work to gather people together to encourage neighborliness are prioritized.

The borders of the flight path (as noted on this map within the black area) are meant to serve as a guide to show the most impacted areas.

Grants will be awarded between $1,000 and $2,000. US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, schools, or government institutions that are in or serve in the affected flight path area, or just outside the flight path area, are encouraged to apply for grants from this fund.
