The Florida Boating Safety and Education Grant Program provides competitive grant funding assistance for local, regional and/or statewide projects targeting improved boating safety education among Florida's boating public.

Eligible participants include county governments and municipalities of the state of Florida and registered 501(c) (3), Not-For-Profit organizations that have a proven record of direct involvement in boating safety education initiatives in Florida.

Boating Safety and Education Grant Program funds are only to be used for the development and implementation of projects targeting improved boater awareness of safe boating practices. Projects must enhance recreational boating safety. Innovative projects are encouraged, especially those that complement and reinforce the Commission's critical boating safety messaging based on the analysis of Florida's annual boating accident statistics and include a system of measuring project effectiveness.

FWC Facts:
Anyone operating a vessel and willfully disregarding the safety of people or property will be cited for reckless operation (a 1st-degree misdemeanor).
