Clean Marina Grants Allow Marinas to Install Pollution Prevention Practices
Utilizing funds from Marylandís Coastal Zone Management Program, the Clean Marina Initiative administered nearly $50,000 over the last 15 months in cost-share grants to 16 marinas, boatyards and yacht clubs. The federal grants, made available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), were used to fund up to 75 percent of the cost of various pollution prevention items on 26 separate projects. The public is invited to view the projects and a complete list can be found here.
