Grants for boating facilities up for grabs

THE NSW Minister for Roads and Ports, Duncan Gay, this week called on local councils, boating clubs and community groups to lodge grant applications with NSW Maritime for new or improved boating infrastructure projects.

Mr Gay said the grants applications were part of the Government’s $5 million Better Boating Program aimed to improve boating facilities across the State.

“The Better Boating Program supports a range of projects – such as boat ramps, public wharves, jetties, dinghy storage, sewage pump-out facilities and public moorings to provide improved access to our waterways,” said Mr Gay.

To be eligible, projects need to meet essential criteria such as infrastructure being of a lasting nature, available for use by a broad cross-section of the boating public and supported by Council and the community.

Information kits and application forms are available at www.maritime.nsw.gov.au or by emailing grants@maritime.nsw.gov.au.
