The Council received an overview of the S-K Grant Program, its process, and recent program changes, and during the meeting there was an evening session to get feedback from fishing community constituents. Each year, the S-K Grant Program awards approximately $10 million to fisheries research and development projects (up to $300,000 per project). These projects are selected based on criteria used to determine how well they address the needs of fishing communities, demonstrate direct benefits to U.S. fishing industries (including both commercial and recreational fisheries), and involve fishing community participation. The Program is currently undertaking efforts to improve its communications and how the results found by the awarded S-K projects are being disseminated with and utilized by the fishing industry. If you were unable to attend the presentations or the feedback session and have questions or would like to provide feedback, please email the NOAA Fisheries S-K National Program Manager, Cliff Cosgrove at firstname.lastname@example.org.
