The Latest News and Updates:
Bipartisan support from U.S. Senators and Members of Congress for Fiscal Year 2020 funding of the U.S. Maritime Administration Small Shipyard Grant Program. View their request letters and see if your representatives added their signatures to these requests: Senate letter and House of Representatives letter. Of note, Senator Patty Murray of Washington, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida sent their own individual letters requesting FY2020 funding for the program.
First annual Small Shipyard Day on Capitol Hill: On March 26, leaders in the maritime community participated in the first-ever fly-in to generate support for the Small Shipyard Grant Program in Congress. In a very productive day, we met with the Maritime Administrator as well as leaders in the Senate and House of Representatives, including key Congressional staff, to discuss the future of the grant program. Without these Coalition efforts, funding for this grant program may lapse.
