Sacramento, Calif.– California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) is accepting applications for the National Boating Infrastructure Grant Program (BIG). Applicants must submit a grant application to DBW on or before Aug. 11, 2016.

BIG is a competitive program open to both publicly owned and privately owned marinas to renovate or construct visitor docks, restrooms, gangways and dockside utility hook-ups. The program is funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program, for transient boat dock improvements. Nationally, an estimated $4 million is available for Tier I projects and $9 million is available for Tier II projects to both publicly owned and privately owned marinas to install or upgrade visitor tie-up facilities for recreational boats 26 feet or greater in length. Eligible projects include the renovation or construction of visitor docks, restrooms, gangways, and dockside utility hook-ups.

Applicants should first review the federal guidelines to determine if they meet the necessary requirements. Marina operators eligible to compete in this program should contact Ron Kent at Ron.Kent@parks.ca.gov or (916) 327-1819.
