Governor Bob McDonnell announces 15 Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries grants on Monday.
The more than $440,000 is designed to help improve boating access to public waters in Virginia. It was identified as a need in Virginia's Outdoors Plan. McDonell says the new recreational opportunities will benefit Virginia business and tourism.
Locally, the Town of Port Royal will get 10-thousand-dollars to install a non-powered canoe and kayak launch, to get into the Rappahannock River.
