Funding for Pumpout and Dump Stations - New or Replacement Installations
The federal Clean Vessel Act (CVA) Program provides funds to states for the construction or replacement of pumpout/dump stations. These federal funds can be used to account for up to 75 percent of all approved projects with the remaining funds supplemented by state and local government, private businesses or associations. Funding is available upon a first-requested, first-served basis. All new and replacement pumpout/dump stations require a grant agreement between the marina and the state of New Hampshire. There are set requirements for pumpout fees and maintenance of the facility over the life of the system.
If you anticipate a project within the next two years, contact the CVA Coordinator before November 10 and your request will be submitted with the grant application to the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Presenting a clear plan for where funding is being allocated allows for a better chance of federal approval for the CVA grant proposal.
