The Clean Vessel Act Grant Program offers funding for marina services at large boating reservoirs. Many of the marina concessionaires in Colorado need financial assistance to replace existing pump-out stations, which allow boaters to dispose of their waste in the same way someone with a recreational vehicle can utilize a dump station. Without these services, there is an increased risk that boaters may dispose of their waste in Colorado’s waterways and harm aquatic wildlife.
Eligible applicants can apply and compete for federal financial assistance for specific projects. Applicants must match their Clean Vessel Act award with non-federal cash or volunteer (in-kind) services and/or equipment use.
For more detailed information please review the CVA Grant Guidelines document. CPW will accept applications on a rolling basis for this competitive Federal Aid program. Please contact the
Grants Unit to obtain an application.
