2019 Life Jacket Grant is Now Open

2019 Life Jacket Grant is Now Open

The application for the 2019 Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Grant is now open. If you are interested in receiving life jackets and a loaner stand from the Sea Tow Foundation for the summer 2019 boating season, please fill out the online application now.

.

Any organization, business or agency wishing to open a new life jacket loaner stand in their area is welcome to apply. Existing loaner stand hosts are also invited to apply to restock their stands. We have a very limited number of loaner stands and will not be able to provide one to everyone who requests one, but we can provide you with building plans and help you find a local group in your area to build and maintain them if you or someone on your staff is unable to build one.

.

The life jackets are the Onyx brand of inherently foam vests made by Absolute Outdoors and life jackets are available in infant, child, youth, adult universal and an Adult XL sizes. The loaner stands have been manufactured by Terrabilt and the stands are packaged in ready-to-build kits that require only minor assembly. Funding to makes these life jackets and loaner stands available has been provided by the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, as administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.

.

Applications are open until February 1, 2019. Final decisions based on the applications will be made and announced by March 15, 2019 and the life jackets and loaner stands will be shipped to the selected groups by early May in time for the summer boating season.
