FWC conducting technical assistance sessions for interested boating access grant program
applicants 

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering technical assistance
to potential applicants interested in the Florida Boating Improvement Program and the Boating
Infrastructure Grant Program. 

The FWC works to improve boating access by evaluating potential sites for new boating access
facilities and those in need of renovation or expansion; funding construction and renovation of
boating access facilities; and administering grants programs for boating access and boating-
related activities. 

The FWC will host four online technical assistance sessions for potential applicants interested
in the Florida Boating Improvement Program and the Boating Infrastructure Grant Program in
January. Applicants already familiar with the programs should still attend a technical assistance
session to learn about recent guideline changes. 

FBIP provides funding through competitive grants for boating access projects and other boating-
related activities benefiting motorized vessels in Florida. Eligible program participants include
county governments, municipalities and other governmental entities of the state of Florida. 

BIGP provides funding through competitive grants for tie-up facilities for transient recreational
boats 26 feet or longer. The program is funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Eligible
participants include local governments, Native American tribes, Port districts, nonprofit
organizations, private organizations, state agencies and some special purpose districts, if legal-
ly authorized to acquire and develop public outdoor recreation facilities.  

The FBIP application period will open on January 19 and close March 20, 2024.  The BIGP
application period will open April 1 and close July 1, 2024. 

Interested parties can visit the Boating Grants Programs website to attend one of the following
sessions via Microsoft Teams: 

-Monday, Jan. 8, 10–11 a.m.
-Wednesday, Jan. 10, 10–11 a.m.
