Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $10,000 to USA, Puerto Rico, and Guam private and public corporations, agencies, individuals, and other entities collaborating with eligible coastal and lake-based institutions for high-risk developmental projects addressing aquaculture issues. A letter of intent must be submitted before applying.

This competition focuses on developmental efforts that will build the capacity of Sea Grant and its partners around diverse aquaculture issues for which a minimal foundation currently exists. As such, this competition intends to fund higher risk, higher reward projects that will bring experts together to identify needs and gaps in their focal area. These projects may support tool development, workshops, education, outreach, business planning, and/or trainings addressing geographic or topical aquaculture issues, such as those which have been identified in Sea Grant’s national focus area of Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture (SFA), the Sea Grant Network 10-year Aquaculture Vision, and in other NOAA and Department of Commerce aquaculture goals.

Sea Grant expects to fund projects across a range of funding levels, topics, and geographies, depending on the proposals received. Selected project teams will be required to participate in an annual National Sea Grant Aquaculture Symposium to share results of work done, challenges, and next steps.

Successful applications will address challenges within a geographic or topical area, such as the following examples:

- Geographically relevant aquaculture challenges that require new paradigms or approaches to overcome
- Initial development of integrated research, outreach, and education program frameworks
- Planning, training, and/or information transfer activities in support of the preceding priorities
- Adapting to environmental change
- Innovative species, technologies, or locations
- Community engagement
- Traditional/ indigenous practices

For more information on program details and background, see the NOFO document in Attached Files below.
