Marine trade group seeks applicants for Grow Boating grants

The Northwest Marine Trade Association is awarding grants for nonprofits seeking assistance in promoting boating in the Pacific Northwest.

The grants are being awarded through the NMTA’s Grow Boating program, which has spent more than $1.5 million to promote boating in the Pacific Northwest since 2003.

The NMTA will award multiple grants up to $20,000 by mid-April 2019.

“Our efforts and programs have reached more than a million people since 2003,” said NMTA Grow Boating director Mark Yuasa in a statement. “We’re very pleased to be able to continue supporting non-profit groups who share our mission of getting more people out on the water or introduced to the joys of boating into our 16th year.”

The grants are offered in three categories.

The Youth Boating Grant is awarded to a group or organization that seeks funding support for an event or program aimed at increasing youth participation in boating.

The Discover Boating Grant is awarded to a group or organization that seeks funding support for an event or program that introduces people to boating.

The Boater Education/Safety Grant is awarded to a group or organization that seeks funding support for an event or program that educates boaters about being safe on the water.

Applications must be received by Feb. 1, 2019, and grants will be awarded by mid-April. Click here to apply for an NMTA Grow Boating grant.
