Surrendered and Abandoned Vessel Exchange (SAVE) Grant Program

The San Mateo County Harbor District has been awareded grant funding from the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Division of Boating and Waterways for the Surrendered and Abandoned Vessel Exchange (SAVE) Program which is designed to remove, reduce and prevent abandoned recreational vessels and marine debris. 

The SAVE program combines the Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund (AWAF) and the Vessel Turn-In Program (VTIP) grants into one, allowing local public agencies the convenience of only one grant to apply for and manage, and the flexibility to use the funds for both purposes as needed.
