Public Boating Access Grants Awarded By ODNR Division of Watercraft

Saturday, November 24, 2012

COLUMBUS, OH – The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Watercraft has awarded $3.7 million in grants for boating access facility projects that will improve and encourage public use and access to Ohio waterways.

Eleven boating facility design and construction projects will be funded through the Cooperative Boating Facility Grant Program for 2012. Four of the projects will help support the state’s fastest growing boating opportunities by improving access for non-motorized boats, such as kayaks and canoes. Other approved projects receiving grant funding from the state’s Waterways Safety Fund will provide enhanced recreational opportunities for users of motorized watercraft, including a new boat ramp along the Ohio River in southeast Ohio.

The Waterways Safety Fund consists of a portion of the state motor fuels tax, watercraft registration and titling fees and funding from the U.S. Coast Guard. Approximately $3.7 million is being allocated statewide from the Waterways Safety Fund to improve waterway access in Delaware, Guernsey, Logan, Lorain, Lucas, Miami, Monroe, Portage and Trumbull counties.

A list of grant recipients and project descriptions can be found online at by clicking on “Grants” on the left side of the page and then clicking on “Cooperative Boating Facility Grant Awards.”

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at
