Fish & Boat Commission Announces Two Grant Programs

Tuesday July 10th, 2018
The Pa. Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is accepting proposals from interested parties seeking funding under two grant programs.
 
The Boating Infrastructure Grant Program (BIG) is a federal program administered in Pennsylvania by the PFBC in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Interior's Fish and Wildlife Service. This program provides grants for transient moorage (tie-ups) serving recreational motor boats 26 feet and longer. Applications are due July 31.
 
Eligible applicants include public and private operators of open-to-the-public boating facilities: municipal agencies (cities, towns, counties, etc.), state agencies (state parks, DCNR, Fish & Wildlife, etc.), and other government entities. 
 
Boating infrastructure refers to features that provide stopover places for transient non-trailerable recreational vessels to tie up. These features include transient slips, day docks, floating docks and fixed piers, navigational aids, and dockside utilities including electric, water, and pumpout stations. Eligible activities include the construction, renovation, and maintenance of these facilities.
 
The grant program will reimburse recipients for up to 75 percent of the costs for project design and engineering, development, expansion, and major rehabilitation. Grant funds will be disbursed to the recipient only after the project sponsor certifies expenditures have been made. 
 
Successful applicants must agree to provide a minimum 25 percent grant match and be willing to enter into a long-term agreement to keep the facility open to the public for its useful life.
    
For more information, visit the Boating Infrastructure Grant Program web page or contact the BIG coordinator at (717) 346-8196.
 
The Clean Vessel Act Program is a federal program administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) that funds the construction, renovation, operation, and maintenance of pump-out stations and waste reception facilities for recreational boats. Applications are due September 30.
 
The PFBC is the only entity in Pennsylvania eligible to apply to the USFWS for funding under the CVA program and is looking for interested partners to use these funds. 
 
Funds are available to both public and private entities, including local governments, that own and operate boating facilities. The pumpout station must be open to the general boating public. Reimbursements occur only after final inspection and approval of the project by PFBC staff.
 
Grants will reimburse recipients for up to 75 percent of the installation cost of pumpout and dump stations, including the cost of new equipment, or the renovation or upgrading of existing equipment, as well as necessary pumps, piping, fitting, lift stations, on-site holding tanks, pier or dock modifications, signs, permits, and other equipment needed for a complete and efficient station. 
 
Grant recipients must provide a minimum 25 percent grant match and guarantee to keep the facility operated, maintained, and accessible to the public for the full useful life of the station.
