NOAA Fisheries Announces 2017 Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Recommendations

NOAA Fisheries announces more than $10 million in recommended grants through the 2017 Saltonstall-Kennedy (SK) Grant competition. 

Of the 41 projects selected nationally, 14 projects are in the Greater Atlantic Region, requesting more than $3.6 million in federal support.

The goal of the SK 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 FY17 solicitation sought applicants that fall into seven priorities. The applications recommended for funding fall into these seven priorities:

Note: At this point in the selection process, application approval and obligation is not final. An application being recommended is not an authorization to begin performance of the project, and is not a guarantee of funding. Final approval is subject to funding availability as well as final review and approval by both NOAA Grants Management Division and DOC Financial Assistance Law Division. No application is "awarded" until it has been signed by the official Grants Officer. The Grants Officer will notify successful applicants in writing when their application has been approved.
