- Business & Finance
Government of Western Australia announced today that Round 23 of the Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme is open now with $1.5 million available for allocation next year.
Local government authorities, State Government agencies and statutory authorities can apply for funds for the planning, construction or upgrade of boat launching ramps, jetties, moorings, breakwaters and new channels directly related to a public recreational boating facility, reported the WA Government.
Transport Minister Rita Saffioti commented: “With $1.5 million available for allocation, it’s now time for recreational boat owners to discuss project proposals with their local boating facility manager as only eligible authorities can apply for grants.”
According to the WA Government, boating facility managers can apply for up to 75 per cent of the cost of a project, with the maximum grant available set at $750,000.
