Earlier this week, the U.S. Maritime Administration (Marad) released its Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the federal Small Shipyard Grant Program. The $8.75 million available in this round may be applied for by privately owned shipyards for new capital projects or certain workforce training projects. 

The deadline for applications is May 8, and you can find more information about the program and eligibility — along with the Marad grant notice — here.
