Your Boating Dollars at Work
Completed access improvements - Sharpsburg, Allegheny County; Shades Beach, Erie County; Lock 57, Beaver County
In January of 2005, the PA Fish and Boat Commission established the Boating Facility Grant Program to help ensure Pennsylvania’s recreational boaters are provided with the highest quality boating facilities on all water bodies of the state. The program is designed to help local governments provide or improve public recreational boat access facilities in their communities that are open for public use.

The one page fact sheets listed below show how your boating dollars are working for you.
