Applications due for fisheries monitoring program

Applications are due by Jan. 31 for the Office of Subsistence Management 2020 Partners for Fisheries Monitoring Program to strengthen Alaska Native and rural involvement in federal subsistence management.

The program is a competitive grant to fund biologists, social scientists and outreach/educator positions in Alaska Native and rural nonprofit organizations to increase participation in federal subsistence fisheries management.

The program supports opportunities for local rural students to connect with subsistence resource monitoring and management through science camps and paid internships.

Funding opportunities can be viewed on either www.grants.gov (search for F19AS00022, the notice of funding opportunity number) or the Federal Subsistence Management Program, at https://www.doi.gov/subsistence/partners.
