Boating Access Program

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, & Parks developed the Boating Access Grant Program to provide assistance to municipal, county, and other governmental entities to develop or improve boating access facilities on public lakes or rivers. The project is funded by tax dollars. Projects can be new developments or improvements to existing facilities, including boat launching ramps, courtesy piers, bathrooms, fish cleaning stations, and parking lots.
