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

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

The NMTA will award as much as $9,000 to one or more organizations by April 1.

“We are very excited to make these grants available to help promote boating in the region,” NMTA vice president of communications and marketing John Thorburn said 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.”

Applications must fall into one of the following categories:

• Youth Boating Grant

• Discover Boating Grant

• Boater Education/Safety Grant

Completed applications must be received by Feb. 24, and grants will be awarded by April.
