Reno flotilla 03 receives grant

According to a recent press release by the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BOAT/US), Flotilla 03 of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary in Reno was among 28 groups to receive a BOAT/US Grassroots Grant.

The flotilla was among 28 groups selected from 225 applications from across the United States.

The Grassroots Grant will be used to convert an existing trailer into a mobile information booth to promote Flotilla services on Lahontan Reservoir, Pyramid Lake and Lake Tahoe.

In the 11 years since the Grassroots Grants program was launched, BOAT/US has distributed some $500,000 to nearly 300 community organizations dedicated to promoting responsible and safe boating.
