The Castellón Port Authority has formed a technical committee to assess the different proposals and projects presented. The deadline for entities to justify each of the projects presented is November 30.The current call promoted by the Castellón Port Authority has been launched under criteria of quality and representativeness of the project. Thus, those initiatives that are directly aimed at a greater number of people have been prioritized.
Rafa Simó has highlighted the commitment of the port of Castellón with citizens. “We set the objective of promoting the coexistence of the port with the Grau, and for this we saw it necessary to sponsor those non-profit organizations that work for society with projects in the sports and cultural field. It is the first time that PortCastelló has launched a campaign of this type but it will not be the last since the Business Plan of the Port Authority of Castellón already provides for the financial endowment for it in 2022. We want to invest to be a port committed to development, a sustainable, open and integrated port in its environment ”.
