Fish & Boat Commission Now Accepting Applications For Erie Access Improvement Grants

On September 18, the
Fish and Boat Commission announced it is now accepting applications for Erie Access Improvement Grants. The deadline to apply is December 30.

Through this program, funding is available to support projects that provide public fishing access or protect or improve fish habitat for Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay, their tributaries, and waters that flow into those tributaries.  

Entities that may qualify for funding through this program include municipal and county governments, and nonprofit groups (501c3) including land trusts, conservancies, and watershed associations.

Applicants may seek grants for site acquisition, access development, expansion, rehabilitation, and other types of projects that benefit recreational fishing and public fishing access on Lake Erie or its tributaries.  

Projects to rehabilitate existing access sites, such as construction of access roads and parking lots, or projects that bring facilities into ADA compliance are also eligible for funding.  

Habitat projects, fisheries research, and the development of fish cleaning stations may also qualify.  Funding requests require a 50% match.

For all the details, visit the Erie Access Improvement Grants webpage.
