Fishing provides an activity for the entire family. The grant program is a part of the TWRA’s continued efforts to increase participation and opportunities in fishing.

To be eligible for the funding, programs must be ethnically inclusive. The program will encourage focus in urban and large population centers of the state.

The program will introduce fishing and/or boating to families. Programs will develop hands-on fishing skills and conservation and promote good stewardship toward Tennessee’s aquatic resources.
