NEWPORT NEWS—The City of Newport News recently requested and received a $285,740 grant from the Virginia Port Authority. This grant, known as the Aid To Local Ports (ATLP) grant, is a part of $1 million in grant funding available annually to municipally owned commercial facilities that help to improve commerce in the state of Virginia. The grant is a 75/25 match.
“Ideally, if you get fully funded, 75 percent is paid through this grant program and the other 25 percent is matched by the municipality receiving it,” said Doreen Kopacz, port development administrator for the City of Newport News. “It’s a highly competitive process and it’s very rare to get fully funded. That said, for the Fiscal Year 2023, I went to management and talked to them about the Menchville area. They have the second biggest seafood draw in Newport News there, which is oysters.”
