New! Department of Natural Resources Center for Waterway Improvement and Infrastructure Program is currently accepting grant applications from local governments seeking to build, enhance or rehabilitate public boating facilities or for dredging/navigation related projects. Applications for fiscal year 2019 are due August 18, 2017.
The Waterway Improvement Fund was created in 1966 by Natural Resources Article 8-701 to support the development, use, and enjoyment of all waters of the State of Maryland for the benefit of the general boating public. Revenues for this Fund are
obtained primarily from the one-time 5% excise tax that is paid to the State of Maryland when a boat is purchased and titled in the State.
The Fund provides financial support to local governments, the Department of Natural Resources, and federal agencies in the form of grants and/or loans for a wide variety of capital projects and services for the boating public.
