Navigating the St. Clair River takes a specific set of skills. So does Navigating grants & Incentives. 

The Walpole Algonac Ferry service has been in operation for over 100 years. Operating out of the historic Walpole Island First Nation in Ontario, Canada, the ferry crosses the St. Clair River to Algonac Michigan, USA.
 
The ferry service understands the importance of utilizing the grant programming available in their space, and counts on GrantMatch to research, identify and secure government funding on their behalf.
