The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD) released the list of shipyards that will receive grants in 2023 under its Small Shipyard Grant Program.

The 2023 program is providing a total of $20.8 million in grant awards to 27 small shipyards in 20 states. The funds will help shipyards modernize, increase productivity, and expand local job opportunities while competing in the global marketplace. 

These shipyards are located in the states of Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Washington.

“Small shipyards strengthen America’s commercial fleet, bolster our economic security and generate good jobs,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, noting that “we are proud to support these shipyards reinforce their vital role in the U.S. maritime sector.”

Since 2008, MARAD’s Small Shipyard Grant Program has awarded $303 million to nearly 350 shipyards in 32 states and territories throughout the United States. 

“As shipbuilding technologies continue to advance, Small Shipyard Grants help America’s shipyards acquire the equipment they need to compete, thrive and expand America’s maritime industry,” remarked Maritime Administrator Ann Phillips.

Phillips also said that “these grants are economic boosts to the communities in which shipyards are located as well as to our industrial supply chain.”
