Applications for Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme now open


​Applications for Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme now open

Applications are now open for Round 20 of the Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme.
Applications will be considered for the planning, construction or upgrade of boat launching ramps, jetties, moorings, breakwaters and new channels directly related to a public recreational boating facility.
Land-based infrastructure at public boating facilities - such as trailer parking areas, toilets and boating signage - are also eligible.
Boating facility managers can apply for up to 75 per cent of the cost of a project, with the maximum grant set at $1.5 million in regional areas and $750,000 in the metropolitan area. The maximum grant for maintenance dredging is $1 million and the minimum grant limit for works projects is $15,000.
Recreational boat owners in regional areas should discuss project proposals with their local government as only eligible authorities can apply for grants.
