Abstract : In situations where planning studies for recreational small boat harbors lead to infeasible projects from a National Economic Development perspective, or where no Federal interest exists, there is a need to develop methods to determine alternative non-Federal financing and investment options for the affected communities. The objective of this Handbook is to provide guidelines for identifying and evaluating alternative, primarily non-Federal, funding strategies for small boat harbor projects. Although the emphasis of this Handbook is on issues related to funding, it is recognized that this is but one step in the successful implementation of good development plans. As such, some of the other key steps that must be in place before financing can be achieved are also described. The guidelines presented are based on five case studies of small boat harbor/marina projects either recently completed or under construction.
