Grow Boating Committee

The Grow Boating Committee promotes the boating lifestyle and improves the boating experience to increase participation in boating to ultimately increase sales of marine products and services. The committee's goal is to get people out on the water, particularly in the Pacific Northwest, to educate them about boats and boating and to introduce them to the joy of owning and operating a boat.

The NYBA Grow Boating Grant Program aims to foster local non-profit organizations that encourage both youth and adult participation in recreational boating. Funding is allocated to programs that embody the spirit of 'growing boating' in their community and creating a lifelong interest in the marine industry.

The 2018 NYBA Grow Boating Grant Program is now collecting applications for this year's funding. To apply please download the application here » The deadline to apply is March 15, 2018. Grants will be awarded in April 2018.
