Marine Board Approves Statewide Boating Facility Grants, Other Items
Fore Immediate Release- June 30, 2011
               The Oregon State Marine Board approved 21, Round One boating facility grant projects for the 2011-2013 biennium and approved initiating rulemaking for newly passed legislation and housekeeping of several existing administrative rules.
                Marine Board staff recommended allocating $1,725,295 in state boater funds, $219, 930 in federal Clean Vessel Act funds and $36,212 in federal Boating Infrastructure Grant funds to match nearly $2 million in applicant matching contributions.  Staff also recommended, and the Board approved, the agency partner with ODFW in matching $3,060,750 in federal Sport Fish Restoration funds.  Total boating improvements to be made under the approved grants near $7 million.
                Approved boating facility grants typically mix funding from a variety of sources, with the Marine Board contributing state boater funds to the overall project total.  Depending on the scope of the project, the Marine Board can help secure federal funding through the Sport Fish Restoration Fund as well as the federal Clean Vessel Act and Boating Infrastructure Grant programs administered by the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife Service.  Applicants also contribute cash, in-kind labor and materials, and cash from other sources to the project.
