Boating Infrastructure Grants Available

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is now accepting applications to fund projects that will help improve boating facilities in Vermont.

Grants are given out for marina improvement projects that directly benefit transient boaters, or boaters that stay at one slip for 10 days or less. Funding for the grants comes from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Boating Infrastructure Grant program.

Projects that are approved are given funding for up to 75 percent of the total cost of construction, and most awards are capped at $100,000. The grant monies are administered by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

"Visitors to Vermont's waterways who boat, fish or just enjoy the scenery are an important part of Vermont's economy," said Mike Wichrowski who oversees the grant for Vermont Fish & Wildlife. "These funds for docks and the associated facilities provide additional opportunities for boaters to enjoy all that Vermont has to offer."

Project proposals in Vermont are typically from marinas looking to construct or upgrade docking facilities to accommodate visiting boats that are at least 26 feet long. Projects that receive federal funding may include construction, renovation, operation, and maintenance of day docks, mooring buoys, floating breakwaters, and dockside utilities.

Anyone interested in applying for these funds is encouraged to contact the Department to obtain application details. Information and grant applications are available at The deadline to apply is Aug. 15.
