RBFF seeks 2011 grant applications

Posted on

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation announced the availability of boating and fishing education grants for 2011.

The foundation’s National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative, which expands on the organization’s boating and fishing education outreach efforts, is encouraging youth-focused organizations to apply by Dec. 27.

“We want to introduce as many children and their families to boating and fishing as possible,” said Frank Peterson, the foundation’s president and CEO. “We focus on quality aquatic education programs delivered at places such as schools, parks and clubs where children and their families already learn, play and grow. We urge both new and existing programs to apply.”

Key requirements of the foundation’s education grant guidelines include introducing boating and fishing to minorities and underserved communities. Special consideration will be given to programs that offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities, encourage long-term involvement of participants, foster multigenerational participation, promote conservation education, support existing foundation partnerships and are inclusive in their programming.
