The Coast Guard published a Notice of Funding Opportunity announcing that it may award up to $5.1 million for cooperative agreements in support of the National Recreational Boating Safety Program. The deadline to apply is Jan. 26, 2018 at 11:59:59 PM EDT. Through this program, the Coast Guard’s goal is to increase opportunities for boater education in order to reduce the number of accidents, injuries and deaths on America’s waterways and provide a safe enjoyable experience for the boating public. The program also encourages greater non-profit organizations’ participation and promotes uniformity of safety efforts across all types of boaters.
