PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering federal grant money for projects that enhance and improve public boating facilities at Arizona lakes and waterways.

The funds are being offered through the Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG) program, a federal program that has a focus on public boating facilities specifically intended to accommodate watercraft over 26 feet in length. Funding for the grants are provided by federal taxes on the sale of equipment related to fishing and boating, and on motorboat fuel.

Grant funds are awarded through a competitive application process. Applications must be received at the department’s Phoenix headquarters no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 9, 2021.
