Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG) Program

MaineDOT sends out an announcement each year, typically in the summer, related to a Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG) Program funding opportunity, from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for projects that may benefit 26 feet or larger recreational transient boats.
These improvements are eligible for both public or private facilities!


It is important to note that the project improvements often benefit all users in a harbor or coastal tidewater facility. This is an important opportunity to help improve Maine coastal communities.


If interested, please review carefully an example of the yearly application criteria from the notice of Availability for Fiscal Year 2014 Tier 2 BIG Grant Program from the USFWS:

After review, if your community or private business feels that it may have an eligible candidate for consideration for an upcoming year, and can fulfill all the requirements including pulling all the information together for an application, please contact Fred Michaud fred.michaud@maine.gov or call him at 207-624-3279.
