The Port of Tacoma Commission has identified 10 local economic development projects to invest in. These projects will be funded by the port’s Local Economic Development Investment Fund, an annual program that supports non-profit organizations and local governments in Pierce County that promote international trade, tourism or infrastructure efforts.

The Port of Seattle will rename six port-owned parks and shoreline access sites along the Duwamish River to new names that reflect the cultural and environmental history of the area. The port has partnered with Seattle Parks Foundation, a well-recognized public parks and greenspace nonprofit, to design and implement the re-naming campaign with transparency and community involvement.
