The goal of the Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant 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. Aquaculture-focused projects are encouraged to apply. The FY22 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.
This year's solicitation consists of two separate submission processes. All interested applicants must submit a 2 page pre-proposal through the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) posted at Grants.gov. Pre-proposals must be received at Grants.gov, postmarked, or provided to a delivery service by 11:59 pm, Eastern Time, August 16, 2021. Use of Grants.gov is preferred.
It is important to note that under this one NOFO there are two competition links. Please be sure to submit pre-proposals to the “Pre-Proposals FY22 Saltonstall-Kennedy” link within the dates specified in this NOFO. Full proposals will be submitted under the “Full Proposals FY22 Saltonstall-Kennedy” link prior to the closing date of November 29, 2021. Be sure to read the NOFO and follow the directions and formatting requirements closely.
