The Northwest Marine Trade Association announced a grant program for non- profit organizations seeking assistance in promoting boating in the region.

The grants are being awarded through the association's Grow Boating program, whose mission is to increase the number of boaters and encourage current boaters to boat more often. Since 2003, the association has spent more than $1 million to promote boating in the Pacific Northwest through events, sponsorships and programs.

The association will award as much as $9,000 to one or more organizations by May 31.

"We are very excited to make these grants available to help promote boating in the region," said John Thorburn, the association's vice president of communications and marketing, in a statement. "Our own efforts and programs have introduced boating to well over a million people since 2003. These grants should help us build new partnerships in the community to spread the benefits and joys of boating to even more."
