Speakers, Wendy Larimer and Scott Meister
 

Did you know the federal government will give you money to construct facilities--from docks to fuel pumps, restrooms to gazebos--for your visiting boaters? They do this under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Boating Infrastructure Grant Program or BIG.

Money is available each year and this session will walk you through, step by step, how to apply. Wendy Larimer an 8-year veteran of the national review committee for BIG grants and an applicant several times over, along with Scott Meister BIG Coordinator for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s South Atlantic-Gulf & Mississippi-Basin Regions will explain the process, cover the must have’s and things to avoid, and leave you with all you need to know to submit a successful application.

This session will also provide free access to AMI's Marina Economic Impact Calculator, a tool used in many successful grant applications.
