Community Benefit Fund

A Legacy Of Community and Commerce

Since its inception in 1937, the Port of Hueneme has embraced a legacy of trade and community enrichment. Throughout this history, the Port and its customers directly or indirectly have provided thousands of jobs to community residents, supported many local business enterprises, and participated in a diversity of community events and activities. In addition to the positive economic impacts, Port customers pay their share for doing business here. The Port does not receive funding from taxpayers for operations, but rather runs off payments from its customers. Approximately 10% of this revenue is in turn provided to the City of Port Hueneme through negotiated agreements. These funds, totaling over $1.9 million in fiscal year 2020, support City infrastructure and public services, and also mitigate the impacts of Port operations.
