Applications Open for Dredging Grants

Minister for Ports Luke Donnellan today opened applications for the Andrews Labor Government’s $8 million 2015-16 Boating Safety and Facilities Program.

Victorian boating groups, local councils and other community organisations will be able to apply for either individual grants or state-wide programs until 16 September 2015.

Grants are awarded to applicants who can demonstrate that there is a need for the funding and that they have met appropriate project planning and risk management criteria when applying for funding.

The program has typically funded:

  • Boating infrastructure improvements including upgrades to boat ramps, jetties, trailer parking and minor access dredging;
  • Master planning for significant boating projects in new or established locations;
  • Search and rescue including assisting recognized rescue groups to undertake training and purchase new rescue boats and equipment;
  • Aids to navigation including provision of signage, buoyage, navigational aids and vessel traffic systems.

The Labor Government’s Boating Infrastructure Stakeholders Group will provide expert advice on key strategic marine safety and waterway management issues and provide input into grant allocation decisions.
