Coast Guard Awards Grants to Sea Tow Foundation Programs

12-Oct-2019

The Sea Tow Foundation is set to receive $330,000 in grants from the U.S. Coast Guard’s Sport Fish Restoration & Boating Trust Fund in order to further its education and awareness campaigns. 

A $210,000 grant will be given to the Life Jacket Loaner Program for the 2019-2020 year, and the same amount will be given to the Sea Tow Foundation the next two years after in order to ensure the program will continue.

The Sober Skipper program will receive $120,000. These funds will help Sea Tow continue building greater awareness of the importance of sober boating.

“We couldn’t be more excited to continue to receive such resounding support from our friends at the Coast Guard,” says Gail R. Kulp, executive director of the Sea Tow Foundation. “These grants will go a long way toward saving lives on waterways all throughout the country, both this year and beyond.”
