Small Shipyard Grants
Small shipyards are a critical component of U.S. maritime operations and economic security, employing more than 100,000 Americans, fostering communities along and near our nation's ports and waterways, and contributing tens of billions in gross domestic product.
The Maritime Administration's Small Shipyard Grant Program is designed to support small shipyard projects that make capital and related improvements; or provide training for workers in shipbuilding, ship repair, and associated industries. Supporting these types of projects drives efficiency, competitive operations, and quality ship construction, repair, and reconfiguration across the industry.
Grants are capped at 75 percent of the project's estimated cost and are available to facilities with fewer than 1,200 production employees. Additional information can be found in the Federal Register.
The Small Shipyard Grant Program was authorized under Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 Pub. L. 117-328, December 29, 2022 (Small Shipyard Grant Program Codified at 46 U.S.C. § 54101).
There is no funding currently available.
