The Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust said its Kids in Boating initiative distributed its first round of grant awards.

The Kids in Boating Initiative issued seven grants totaling $6,600. They ranged from $500 to $1,500.

The non-profit grant recipients were: Bourne Community Boating; Sail Salem Community Boating; Atlantic White Shark Conservancy; Greater Fall River RE-CREATION; Save the Harbor / Save the Bay; Crossroads MA; and Outward Bound / USCG Foundation.

The Kids in Boating grant program is designed to financially support nonprofit youth programs in Massachusetts. The Kids in Boating committee believed that these seven groups shared a common goal of getting more kids on the water in a safe and smart manner and deserved to receive a grant to assist in achieving this goal, according to a statement.

Sponsors include 3A Marine, Robalo Boats, MyTaskit, Hingham Shipyard Marinas and Newburyport Marinas.
