The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced that applications are being accepted for the Erie Access Improvement Program. Townships are eligible for this funding opportunity and the deadline for applications is December 30, 2022. Funding requests require a 50% match.
Funding is available to support projects that provide public fishing access or protect or improve fish habitat for Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay, their tributaries, and waters that flow into those tributaries. Projects include site acquisition, access development, expansion, rehabilitation, and other types of projects that benefit recreational fishing and public fishing access. Projects to rehabilitate existing access sites, such as construction of access roads and parking lots, or projects that bring facilities into ADA compliance are also eligible for funding.
