Clean Vessel Pumpout Grants, Deadline Sept. 15

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This MDNR program provides funding for new or upgraded marine sewage disposal facilities, pumpouts and dump stations. Approval is based on the type of marine sewage disposal facility proposed, geographic location, number of boats served and cost of the facility.  Greater priority will be given to projects which provide increased access to pumpouts and dump stations, taking into account cost considerations to provide the highest benefit for the monies spent.

Eligibility:
Grants are provided to both private and public boating facilities as long as they are open to the public.  Eligible projects primarily include dump stations, additional pumpouts at large boating facilities or those covered by a pumpout agreement, pumpouts for mooring facilities with a minimum of 15 slips, and upgrading of older pumpout systems.

Local Match: 25%, 75% by Reimbursement

Grants are limited to the cost of a pump out and holding tank hook up.

Source(s) of Funds:
The U.S. Sport Fish Restoration account of the Aquatic Resources Trust Fund, commonly known as the Wallop-Breaux Fund is the source of funding.  The Michigan DNR has a limited amount of federal funds available for this program.  We will continue to accept applications, but the ability to award new grants is dependent upon future federal funds.
