Community Support

The Port of Port Angeles strives to create and participate in a thriving community in Clallam County. The Port accomplishes this goal by fee waivers and the Community Partner Program. Please learn more about this effort below...

Fee Waivers

Port of Port Angeles Commission Resolution 17-1156 encourages the use of Port facilities for appropriate public activities do not interfere with the day-to-day operations of the Port or its tenants and customers. The Executive Director is authorized to negotiate reduced fees for Port sponsored events and activities where the Port is not an active participant or events/activities of non-profit organizations which promote tourism, promote the use of Port facilities or benefit the citizens of Clallam County.

Please view the Current Waiver List to see examples of fees the Port Commission has recently waived in support of organizations in Clallam County.

Community Partner Program 

The Port of Port Angeles’ Community Partner Program offers matching funds of up to $65,000 for use in trade promotion, tourism promotion, public education & awareness and economic development projects for small cities and non-profits in Clallam County, hereinafter referred to as “community”. For the purposes of this program, an eligible Clallam County community is defined as:
  • A public or non-profit group
  • An incorporated or unincorporated small city of no more than 10,000 residents

How It WorksForks Chamber banners

The Board of Commissioners determines the total funds available in any calendar year. Small cities and non-profits may submit proposals to the Port of Port Angeles for screening and prioritization. Following the solicitation period, Port staff forward all eligible proposals to the Board.  The Board then selects the community or communities and awards funds to the most worthy proposals.  The number and value of individual awards may vary from year to year depending on the selections by the Board of Commissioners, available funds and the proposals submitted.  Each small city or non-profit then has until the end of the calendar year to spend the project money and submit supporting documentation to the Port of Port Angeles for reimbursement. 


The application period will open for 2019 applications in the fall of 2018.
