Does your local boat ramp need something fixed?

There is now funding available via Better Boating Victoria for boat ramp managers to undertake significant structural maintenance at publicly accessible boating facilities through the Recreational Boating Structural Maintenance Program.

Maybe you have an idea for a new floating pontoon that would make your local ramp more user friendly. Or you might have a suggestion for a new ramp surface to make it easier to launch at your favourite ramp. If you have a suggestion to share, you can get in contact your boat ramp facility manager and let them know there’s funding now available.

You can find the facility manager at your favourite ramp by using the Maritime Safety Victoria’s Boating Vic website. When viewing your chosen ramp it lists the facility manager under further information.

This funding will allow eligible organisations to ensure public boating facilities remain accessible and safe for Victorians launching and retrieving their vessels. Up to $2 million will be available through the program, with no more than $300,000 allocated per project.

Read more about the Recreational Boating Structural Maintenance Program grants on the Better Boating Victoria’s website.

Applications close Wednesday 23 March. It is anticipated that funding announcements will be made by April 2022.
