WASHINGTON - August 1, 2013 - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren today applauded the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) announcement of a new federal grant opportunity through the FY 2013 Saltonstall-Kennedy Program, which can benefit the fishing industry in Massachusetts.

Senator Warren had previously urged NOAA's Acting Administrator Dr. Kathryn D. Sullivan to provide Saltonstall-Kennedy funding for these grants, and she has worked with Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) to increase the Saltonstall-Kennedy grants for FY 2014.

"NOAA's announcement of new grant opportunities through Saltonstall-Kennedy is great news for Massachusetts' fishing communities," said Senator Warren. "I'm pleased NOAA is making this grant solicitation, which is an excellent chance for our ports to secure funding that will help the fishing industry innovate and modernize for the future."

NOAA anticipates awarding between $5-$10 million in competitive grants focused on fisheries research and development projects, including cooperative research projects with industry. The grant announcement may be viewed here.
