AZGFD offers grant funding to improve public boating facilities

Posted July 17, 2020

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department anticipates offering federal grant money to enhance and improve public boating facilities at Arizona lakes and waterways.

The funds are anticipated to be available during the next two fiscal years through the Boating Infrastructure Grant, a federal program that has a focus on public boating facilities specifically intended to accommodate watercraft over 26 feet in length. Funding for the grant is 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. Grant applications must be received at the department’s Phoenix headquarters no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.
