Grants available for 'pump-out' renovations, construction in RI

Posted: Updated:

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management is now accepting grant applications from public and private marinas and yacht clubs, looking to install or renovate their pump-out facilities.

Cities and towns can also apply for the grants, from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Clean Vessel Act. 

Grants up to $18,750 are available for land-based work, and up to $56,250 is available for pump-out boats.

Applicants would have to match 25 percent of the grant amount.     

A total of $200,000 is available. 

Rhode Island was the first state in country to receive a 'no discharge' designation from the Environmental Protection Agency in 1998.

Applications are available on the DEM's website. The deadline to apply for a pump-out grant is May 7.
