NOAA Fisheries is pleased to announce that the 2023 Saltonstall-Kennedy grant competition is currently open.
This year's solicitation consists of two separate submission processes. All interested applicants must submit a two-page pre-proposal to the Notice of Funding Opportunity. Applicants interested in submitting a full application after the pre-proposal review process must submit the full application through Grants.gov.
The goal of the program is to fund projects that address the needs of fishing communities, optimize economic benefits by building and maintaining sustainable fisheries, and increase other opportunities to keep working waterfronts viable. The FY23 solicitation seeks applications that fall into one of two priorities:
- Promotion, development, and marketing
- Science or technology that promotes sustainable U.S. seafood production and harvesting
