Washington state hands out millions in boat grantsPosted on
The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Funding Board recently awarded more than $12.3 million in grants to help improve boating facilities and trails in 33 counties.
Ninety projects received funding.
“Washington is known for its great outdoor opportunities,” said Val Ogden, chair of the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board. “But they don’t take care of themselves. These grants provide money to repair trails and fix boat launches and other facilities. With these grants, our outdoor resources will stay a great place to recreate.”
This year, the Recreation and Conservation Funding Board received 157 applications requesting nearly $24 million in funding, about 57 percent more funding than was available.
Grant applicants will contribute more than $5.5 million in matching funds and resources, making the total investment nearly $18 million.
