Alaska Region Funding Opportunities
Information about funding opportunities available in the Alaska region.
NOAA Fisheries in Alaska supports the NOAA Fisheries’ mission through competitive and non-competitive grants and cooperative agreements. We fund efforts to restore salmon populations, conserve marine mammals, and support fishing communities.
Federal Program Officers ensure the timely processing of all financial assistance awards, from initial solicitation through post award management. They work with the NOAA Grants Management Division, program staff, and grant recipients throughout the award period to facilitate the successful completion of project objectives. For more information or assistance, please email email@example.com.
There are also other grant programs administered by partner agencies and organizations that can support your projects.

Other NOAA Fisheries Funding Opportunities
Alaska Native Co-Management of Marine Mammals in Alaska
NOAA Fisheries can establish cooperative agreements with Alaska Native Organizations, including Alaska Native Tribes and tribally authorized co-management bodies to manage marine mammals. The agreements incorporate the spirit and intent of co-management through close cooperation and communication between federal agencies and the Alaska Native Organizations, hunters, and subsistence users. Agreements encourage the exchange of information regarding the conservation, management, and utilization of marine mammals in U.S. waters in and around Alaska.
Alaska Fisheries Disaster Relief
Fisheries can experience sudden and unexpected losses, leading to serious economic impacts for fishers and their communities. In these instances, a state governor or an elected or duly appointed representative of an affected fishing community can request a fishery disaster determination from the Secretary of Commerce.
