The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Watercraft recently awarded more than $2.3 million in Cooperative Boating Access Facility Program grants to improve public access next year at 21 sites across the state.

The grants range from a low of $27,000, for construction of a pathway for non-motorized boat access to the Hocking River in Athens County, to a high of $825,000, for ramp improvements at Alum Creek State Park in Delaware County.

Other funded projects are located in Clermont, Defiance, Hamilton, Harrison, Highland, Lawrence, Lucas, Muskingum, Summit and Washington counties.

The Cooperative Boating Access Facility Grant Program is funded through the Ohio Waterways Safety Fund, which comprises a portion of the state motor fuels tax, watercraft registration and titling fees, and funding from the Coast Guard.

The grants are awarded on a competitive basis and are administered by the Ohio DNR Division of Watercraft to improve access for the state’s estimated 3 million boaters.
