Grant Money Aims to Develop VA Boating Access
A new grant could help some Virginia localities develop boating access. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries estimates there are about 250,000 registered boats in Virginia and additional sites are needed as many more boaters are not registered, but use those facilities. The grant money would provide up to 75 percent of the project costs to build or renovate. Applications are due by Oct. 1 and grant awards are anticipated by Jan. 1, 2015.
