Grants to USA and Compact Free Associations nonprofit organizations, corporations, and individuals for research and development projects related to U.S. fisheries. An initial-stage proposal is required prior to the submission of the full proposal. In addition, applicants are advised that the pre-registration process may take as long as one month to complete. Funding is intended to support 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 Saltonstall-Kennedy Act established a fund (known as the S-K fund) used by the Secretary of Commerce to provide grants or cooperative agreements for fisheries research and development projects addressing aspects of U.S. fisheries, including, but not limited to, harvesting, processing, marketing, and associated business infrastructures. Grants and cooperative agreements are made to assist in carrying out projects to expand domestic and foreign markets related to U.S. commercial and recreational fisheries. The term “fisheries” encompasses wild capture, marine aquaculture, and recreational fishing.
The objective of the S-K Research and Development Program (known as the S-K Program) is to address the needs of the fisheries and fishing communities in optimizing economic benefits by building and maintaining sustainable fisheries and practices, dealing with the impacts of conservation and management measures, and increasing other opportunities to use existing infrastructure to support keeping working waterfronts viable. U.S. fisheries include any fishery, commercial or recreational, that is, or may be, engaged in by citizens or nationals of the United States or other eligible applicants. The competition is open to applicants from a variety of sectors, including individuals, industry, academia, and state and local governments.
