U.S. Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant accepting pre-proposals for aquaculture projects
Awards will be up to USD 300,000 for up to a two-year period for projects on science or technology that promotes sustainable U.S. seafood production and harvesting.
The U.S. Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Competition is now accepting pre-proposals for FY23 projects. This program funds projects that address the needs of fishing communities, optimize economic benefits by supporting marine aquaculture and increase other opportunities to keep working waterfronts viable. Awards will be up to USD 300,000 for up to a two-year period. 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.
This year's solicitation consists of two separate submission processes. All interested applicants must submit a two-page pre-proposal through the Notice of Funding Opportunity page. Pre-proposal applications are due July 18, 2022.
After the review process, select applicants will be invited to submit a full application through grants.gov.
