UNION, N.J. – The deadline for community organizations to apply for a 2011 Interlux Waterfront Challenge grant is Aug. 31, according to a release from the company.
The company will award $50,000 in grants in October to organizations to create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities. Eight grants from $4,500 to $20,000 will be awarded to groups in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
A five-judge panel of marine industry leaders – with the help of boaters voting on Facebook for their favorite projects among the applications – will select seven regional winners to be awarded grants of $4,500 each and a grand prize winner to be awarded a grant of $20,000. Grant awards will be made at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
