Deadline nears for Interlux grant applications

The deadline for 2011 Interlux Waterfront Challenge grant applications is Aug. 31 and the company recently released a commercial, airing on Ship Shape TV, designed to encourage community organizations to apply.

Ship Shape TV is a weekly half-hour boat improvement “how-to” television series. The program airs nationally on Comcast, Fox Sports Net College, Tuff-TV and Retro-TV and on regional networks including FSN New York, FSN Florida and FSN South, along with a classic show on Sun Sports.

Interlux will award $50,000 in grants in October to organizations to create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities. Eight grants from $4,500 to $20,000 will be awarded to groups in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

A five-judge panel of marine industry leaders who share a passion for protecting our waters — with the help of boaters voting on Facebook for their favorite projects among the applications — will select seven regional winners to be awarded grants of $4,500 each and a grand prize winner to be awarded a grant of $20,000.

Grant awards will be handed out in October at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
