This year NOAA is requesting applications that fall into four priorities areas:

  • Marine Aquaculture
  • Adapting to Environmental changes and Other Longer Term Impacts in Marine Ecosystems
  • Promotion, Development, and Marketing
  • Territorial Science

Established in 1954, the Saltonstall-Kennedy grants program is designed to address the needs of fishing communities, improve the economy by building and maintaining sustainable fisheries, and increase other opportunities to keep working waterfronts viable.

The intent of this webinar is to inform all potential applicants from the Alaska area and encourage the submission of pre-proposals for consideration by the S-K program.
