Last call for safe and clean boating grant

ADVERTISEMENT

Deadline for applying for a $10,000 grant from BoatUS Foundation is Jan. 15. The group is looking to fund Grassroots Grants projects that use new, innovative approaches to encourage safe and clean boating among the boating public.



The program has funded more than $1.3 million in local boating safety and clean water projects over the past 25 years. Last year, it more than doubled its grant size to $10,000.



“While the program targets small local groups, organizations and non-profits, we’re getting away from awarding funds for traditional signs, brochures, or boat show giveaway items,” said BoatUS Foundation Outreach Manager Alanna Keating. “Now, we’re looking to tap into the many exciting interactive and innovative ways to encourage behavior changes, including social media, the web or unique hands-on activities.”



To apply, visit www.BoatUS.org/Grants to view the guidelines. Grant application may include videos, photos, graphics or anything to convey the group’s concept to help increase the chances of funding. The projects with the most votes will have one year to complete the grant project.
