Grants of up to $32,000 per year to Ohio state departments, political subdivisions, and conservancy districts to establish or maintain and run a marine patrol. The goal of the marine patrols is to guard the lives and property of anyone engaging in recreational boating on state waters. Grants may be utilized for the purchase, maintenance, and operation of vessels, marine equipment, education materials, and personnel salaries.

Under this grant program, the purpose of a marine patrol is to enforce Chapters 1547 and 1548 of the Ohio Revised Code and the rules adopted under these Chapters, and to provide emergency response to boating accidents that occur on the water.

All grants are awarded based on the potential success and ability of the marine patrol to provide such service to the boating community. Established marine patrols are also evaluated on their efforts and achievements from the previous year. The scoring of each application is a competitive evaluation process.
