The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with NOAA, is now soliciting Full Proposals for the 2022 Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program. The Request for Proposals is available here.
This year, the Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program will give priority to projects that:
- Implement electronic technologies for the support of fisheries conservation and management; and
- Modernize data management systems in order to reduce costs and improve consistency, interoperability, quality, and/or usability of information collected using e-technology.
NFWF estimates awarding no more than $3.5 million in grants, contingent on the availability of funding. Awards are anticipated to range between $200,000 to $500,000 on average.
Full proposals must be submitted through NFWF’s Easygrants system no later than Tuesday, June 7, 2022. An informational webinar has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 27, 2022 3:00-4:00pm ET to provide an overview of the Electronic Monitoring and Reporting funding opportunity.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to participate and can register for the webinar here.
