The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation is offering boating and fishing education grants totaling $800,000 as part of the organization’s National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative.

"We're looking for programs that provide hands-on opportunities for children and their families to learn not only about boating and fishing, but also conservation,” RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement.

Key requirements include introducing boating and fishing to minorities and underserved communities. While all applications will be considered, RBFF will give special consideration to programs that offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities, encourage long-term involvement of participants, provide training for instructors, promote conservation and support existing RBFF partnerships.

Grant applications must be e-mailed or postmarked on or before Jan. 30, and recipients will be announced in March.
