Port of Coupeville
At their regular monthly public meeting on March 13, 2013, the Board of Commissioners approved grants to two non-profit organizations. The Board accepted an application from the Conservation District and awarded $500 to help support the annual Farm Tour and also accepted an application from the Board of the Penn Cove Water Festival and awarded $1,000 to help support the annual festival. The applications submitted matched the Port's criteria of helping our local economy while protecting our local environment. The Port will budget for making similar awards for these purposes every year.

Washington's Public Port Districts
The state Legislature of Washington passed the Port District Act in 1911, creating public port districts in Washington. In September 1911, the Port of Seattle became the first autonomous municipal corporation in the nation to engage in port terminal operation and commerce development. The formation of the Port of Grays Harbor soon followed. Since 1911, more than 76 public port districts of all sizes and in every corner of the state have been created by voters throughout the state.
