Small Shipyard Grant Program

AGENCY: Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation

SUMMARY: The Small Shipyard Grant program was established under Section 3508(a) of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 (Pub. L. 110-417), codified at 46 U.S.C. § 54101. The statute authorizes the Maritime Administrator to provide assistance in the form of grants to make capital and related improvements in small shipyards located in or near maritime communities and to provide training for workers in communities whose economies are related to the maritime industry. The purpose of the program is to foster efficiency, competitive operations, and quality ship construction, repair, and reconfiguration in small shipyards across the United States. The program also seeks to foster projects that would be effective in fostering employee skills and enhancing productivity in communities whose economies are related to or dependent upon the maritime industry.

STATUS:  There currently is no funding available for the Small Shipyard Grant program.  When funding becomes available a notice will be posted.
