The Port of Camas-Washougal will receive a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced this week.

The money will be used to make infrastructure improvements to help establish an industrial workspace for local manufacturing firms.
The improved area will be located in an Opportunity Zone, and will be matched by $2.5 million in local funds and $1.4 million in state funds, according to a press release from the Department of Commerce.
