    Several sources you can check into. NOAA Habitat Restoration maintains a list of available grants. Local Public-Private partnerships, even if it’s in-kind, can move you closer to your goals. Working with your Miami-Dade County Reef Coordinator (see contact info for Artificial Reefs) will help identify other local funds that might be available. State competitive grants are provided annually through Florida Fish and Wildlife. Usually the announcement is posted in Jan – Feb and due in Mar – Apr. You can call their office and request additional information (850) 922-4340 x207. And of course you can contact my Sea Grant Extension Colleague in Miami-Dade, Dr. Lisa Krimsky, for further assistance and information.

      Thanks! We are working to develop the website. Please visit often as we’ll be updating our Bay County Artificial reef pages in the next few days with resources to help you find the best fishing spots next time you in town.
