Boating Infrastructure Grant Program Tier II: The Sportfishing and Boating Safety Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-178) established BIG to provide funding to States, the District of Columbia, Commonwealths, and territories for the development and maintenance of facilities for transient nontrailerable recreational vessels. Nontrailerable recreational vessels are defined in the law as recreational vessels 26 feet in length or longer operated primarily for pleasure; or leased, rented, or chartered to another for the latter's pleasure. The Act amended the Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act (Wallop-Breaux Act; 16 U.S.C. 777). Subsequent reauthorizations of the Act have allowed for the continuation of BIG. In FY 2009, more than $12.4 million in Tier II grants were awarded to 11 States across the United States for 14 boating infrastructure projects. We anticipate awarding approximately $10 million in BIG Tier II funding for FY 2010. The final rule establishing the requirements for participation in BIG was published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2001 (66 FR 5282).
