The Clean Vessel Assistance Program (CVAP) provides three types of grants to marinas for the installation, renovation, and replacement of pumpout stations for the removal and disposal of recreational boater septic waste. The program is federally funded through the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and is administered by the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation. CVAP funding is supported through the Sport Fish Restoration fund and your purchase of fishing equipment and motor boat fuels.
CVAP is a reimbursement grant program, and funding is not disbursed until all payments are made and the project is complete. Funding is currently available and applications are accepted on a continuous basis.
