Know Your Wisconsin: Harbor Assistance Program

Air Date: 04/07/2021 -

While people tend to enjoy the fun activities of a state surrounded by water, Wisconsin also happens to be a lesser-known hub for commercial waterways. So much so, that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation offers the Harbor Assistance Program to help cities and companies build upon, and improve, their port infrastructure. This program offers grant money to help harbors do things like: dock wall repairs, replacing bollards, dredging, or ship building. For example, they awarded Fincantieri Shipbuilders in Marinette a grant to provide infrastructure to win a contract through the Department of Defense to build their Navy ships.
