Maritime grants provide funding support to non-profit organizations in the Philadelphia, Delaware River, area for maritime educational activities designed to: preserve historic maritime resources, increase public awareness, develop an appreciation for the maritime heritage of Philadelphia, or teach basic or advanced maritime skills. Grants will also be available to support on-going maintenance and preservation of the sailing ship, Gazela, through the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild, and eventually develop educational activities using the Gazela as a teaching tool. Grants will be reviewed through the year.
Grant requests are funded for one year. Applicants are limited to one proposal at a time and one grant within any twelve month period.
This program is restricted to the Philadelphia waterfront and funds only non-profit organizations whose main purpose is maritime education and/or maritime heritage preservation, and the preservation of the Gazela.
