Boating Facilities Grant Applications Now Available
Grant funding for various boating facility improvements is anticipated to be available through the Department’s Boating Facilities Program. Congress allocates annual funds to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to support these programs that are largely restricted to on-the-ground activities and enhance boating access and facilities for the recreational boater and angler on Arizona waterways. There are two different grant programs: Boating Infrastructure Grants (BIG) and Clean Vessel Act Grants (CVA).
Boating Infrastructure (BIG) Grants
The application period for FY 2023 BIG grants closed on Aug. 22, 2022.
Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Grants
Applications are currently being accepted for FY 2023 CVA grants. The deadline for CVA grant applications to be physically received by the Department is 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, 2022. All grants awarded must comply with the provisions of the Build America, Buy America Act which was enacted as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on Nov. 15, 2021.
