The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is looking to fund Grassroots Grant projects that utilize new, innovative approaches that encourage safe and clean boating among the boating public. Organizations with the best ideas will be awarded grants of up to $10,000 to implement their project. The deadline for applications is Jan. 15, 2015, and public online voting on the applications will take place in early spring. The foundation’s Grassroots Grants program has funded more than $1.3 million in boating safety and clean water projects over the past 25 years. Groups wishing to apply for a Grassroots Grant may go to www.BoatUS.org/grants to view the guidelines and begin their application.
