Sportfishing, Boating and Aquatic Education Programs for Youth Still Eligible for State Grants, Says Metzgar
1/8/2009
State grants are available to organizations and local agencies sponsoring programs to promote sportfishing, boating and aquatic activities among Pennsylvania’s youth, Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) announced today.
 
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is offering grants worth up to $5,000 as part of state efforts to re-engage youth in outdoor activities and help more Pennsylvanians feel connected to their environment. 
 
In 2007, the PFBC received 47 applications and awarded 18 grants worth approximately $67,000.   For 2008, 10 groups successfully met the criteria for the Sportfishing and Aquatic Education Grants and received nearly $50,000 for their respective programs.
 
Organizations have until Jan. 31, 2009, to submit applications for the coming year. Successful applicants will be notified by April 15, 2009, and funding will be awarded four to eight weeks after all agreements are finalized. 
 
For a complete set of program rules, eligibility information and applications visit Metzgar’s Web site at RepMetzgar.com and click on “Sportfishing and Aquatic Education Grants.”
