Boating Facilities

Your Way to the Water
The Marine Board does not own or operate any boating sites or facilities and instead, relies on willing partners to apply for grants to make needed improvements.

Boating Facility Grants are available to waterway managers of public boating access sites around the state to acquire, improve, and maintain boating facilities that serve recreational boaters. Typical boating improvements include launch ramps, boarding floats, parking lots, restrooms, transient moorage, and other items needed by boaters.
If you are interested in applying for a boating access or Clean Vessel Act grant, review the resources below:
