Fisheries Innovation Fund 2017 – Request for Proposals

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) will award grants to foster innovation and support effective participation of fishermen and fishing communities in the implementation of sustainable fisheries in the U.S. NFWF anticipates awarding approximately $650,000 through this solicitation.
The program seeks to support fishermen and communities as they work to meet the sustainable fisheries goals of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Reauthorization Act of 2006, including provisions to help: 1) rebuild overfished stocks, 2) sustain fishermen, communities, and vibrant working waterfronts, 3) promote safety, fishery conservation and management and 4) promote community and economic benefits.
