Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation Invites Applications for Youth Education Grants
Deadline: December 27, 2010

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase participation in recreational angling and boating, has announced the availability of education grants for 2011. RBFF’s National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative, which expands on the organization’s boating and fishing education outreach efforts, is encouraging youth-focused organizations to apply.

Key requirements for this grant include introducing boating and fishing to minorities and underserved communities. Special consideration will be given to programs that offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities, encourage long-term involvement of participants, foster multi-generational participation, promote conservation education, support existing RBFF partnerships, and are inclusive in their programming. Successful grant applicants will also demonstrate partnerships with local, community-based educational, youth, and social service agencies as well as the appropriate state fish and wildlife, game, or boating agency personnel.

The total award budget is anticipated to range between $500,000 and $800,000. Last year, three grant proposals received funding.

Grant guidelines and application, as well as information on previous grant recipients, are available at the RBFF Web site.
