2021 Small Shipyard Grant Program Funding Requests: champions in the U.S. Senate, led by Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) led a bipartisan letter requesting funding for continuing the grant program in FY2021. They secured a bloc of the largest number of Senators ever to request funding for this program. In the House of Representatives, champions Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY-18) and Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH-7), who serve as Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Transportation Committee's Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, gathered the largest number of House Members to ever request funding for the program on their bipartisan letter, nearly double the number from last year. Please thank these Members and their dedicated staff for all the hard work to promote continued funding for the Small Shipyard Grant program.
