Clean Vessel Act Grants Available for Boating Facilities 

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has announced the availability of funding through the federal Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Grant Program administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. CVA grant funds are available to townships that own and operate boating facilities. Applications must be submitted by December 30, 2022. Funding requests require a 25% match of the proposed project cost in cash or the fair market value of any in-house labor or materials or a combination thereof.  

Grants awarded through this program will reimburse recipients for up to 75% of the installation cost of pump-out and dump stations, including the cost of new equipment, or the renovation or upgrading of existing equipment, as well as necessary pumps, piping, fitting, lift stations, on-site holding tanks, pier or dock modifications, signs, permits and other miscellaneous equipment needed for a complete and efficient station.  

Applications and the CVA guidebook may be found on the PFBC’s website. Questions regarding the CVA Grant Program may be directed to Scott Bollinger at (717) 346-8196 or
