Coast Guard Awards Grants For Boating Safety Programs

The U.S. Coast Guard has awarded 27 competitive grants totaling more than $3.8 million for recreational boating safety.

Ten national nonprofit organizations received funding in 2020 through the National Recreational Boating Safety Program. The purpose of the National Recreational Boating Safety Program is to reduce the number of accidents, injuries, and deaths on America’s waterways and to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for the boating public. The program also encourages greater nonprofit organization participation and uniformity throughout the nation in boating safety efforts. It is funded through the U.S. Coast Guard via the federal Sport Fishing Restoration and Boating Trust Fund.
