The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation announced the availability of boating and fishing education grants for 2012.

Youth-focused organizations are encouraged to apply for RBFF'sNational Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative, which expands on the organization's boating and fishing education outreach efforts.

The application deadline is Dec. 30.

"We're looking for high-quality education programs that will not only introduce children and their families to boating, fishing and conservation, but also foster continued participation," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "Our goal is to create future lifetime boaters and anglers who will respect and care for our aquatic natural resources. We urge both new and existing programs to apply."

Key requirements of RBFF's education grant guidelines include introducing boating and fishing to members of minority groups and underserved communities. Special consideration will be given to programs that offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities, encourage long-term involvement of participants, foster multigenerational participation, promote conservation education, support existing RBFF partnerships and are inclusive in their programming.
