The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation is offering boating and fishing education grants for 2010 through its National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative.

"We're looking for high-quality education programs that give kids and their families hands-on experience with boating, fishing and conservation," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "Recent research shows fishing is the No. 1 gateway activity for introducing children and their families to the outdoors."

Requirements for the grant include programs that introduce boating and fishing to minorities and underserved communities, and offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities as well as long-term involvement of participants. All grant applications must be received by Jan. 4.

To date, more than 185,000 kids have participated this year in RBFF's education programs.
