Federal Clean Vessel Act grant program

The Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Program is a nationwide competitive federal grant program that provides funding to states as part of an effort to clean up the nation's waterways. Nationwide, the program receives about $10 million annually. Funding for the CVA program comes from the Federal Sport Fish Restoration Account of the Aquatic Resources Trust Fund. The CVA encourages states to subcontract with private marinas/businesses as well as local units of government to construct projects.

Eligible projects include:

  • Mooring buoys
  • Day-docks
  • Construction, renovation, operation and maintenance of pump-out and dump stations including:
    • Floating restrooms not connected to land or structures, and
    • Structures connected to the land, used solely by boaters
  • Education/information materials


Applications are accepted all year long.
