The 2019 Saltonstall-Kennedy (S-K) Grant competition full proposal solicitation closed November 5, 2018.
This year's solicitation consists of two separate submission processes, a pre-proposal and a full submission process. All applicants are required to submit a pre-proposal in advance of a full proposal submission. The pre-proposal process closed July 23, 2018 and the full proposal process closed November 5, 2018.
The goal of the S-K 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 FY19 solicitation seeks applications that fall into one of three priorities:
- Promotion, Development, and Marketing
- Marine Aquaculture
- Support of Science that Maximizes Fishing Opportunities, Revenue and Jobs in U.S. Fisheries While Ensuring the Long-Term Sustainability of Marine Resources
