Apply for a Grant Quick Links

Applying for a Clean Vessel Act grant is easy with online submission and a streamlined process. Applications are accepted year round so there is no restriction on when you can apply. Facilities approved for funding are reimbursed 75 percent of the total cost of pumpout projects, only having to provide 25 percent of the total as match— a $3 to $1 return on your investment.

Grant Process
  1. Meet Grant Requirements
  2. Submit Application
  3. Sign Grant Agreement
    After reviewing your application, DEP issues a grant agreement (contract) for your pumpout project. You sign the contract and return it to DEP for final approval.
  4. Have a Site Visit
    A DEP staff member visits your facility to review the proposed pumpout site. This is not a regulatory visit. It simply allows DEP to ensure the pumpout location allows for proper sewage disposal.
  5. Receive DEP Approval
    Once your site visit is completed and DEP signs the grant agreement (contract), you will receive official notification that your project is approved, and you may proceed. Expenses incurred or work performed prior to receiving DEP approval will not be reimbursed.
  6. Begin and Complete Project
  7. Submit for Reimbursement
  8. Log and Report Pumpout Activity
