Grants are available to North Carolina municipalities, universities, and others to manage and protect fish and their habitats and to provide fisherman with needed fishery resources along the coast. Only projects with minimal effect on shoreline vegetation, wetlands, and water quality will be considered.
The Division of Marine Fisheries encourages low impact development that protects vegetated shorelines, wetlands, water quality, submerged aquatic vegetation, designated primary nursery areas, and designated anadromous fish spawning areas. Proposals should avoid adverse impacts to these sensitive habitats. In the event that impacts cannot be avoided or minimized through alteration of the project configuration or design, the project may not be considered for funding even though it meets a request for proposals funding priority.
