National Fisherman

Commercial fishermen interested in potential financial assistance from a trio of federal grant programs should keep two upcoming dates in mind.
 
On Sept. 29, the application period will close for fiscal 2013 Saltonstall-Kennedy grants, a national competitive program launched earlier this summer by the Department of Commerce to provide grants for fisheries research and other development project related to U.S. fisheries.
 
The individual grants can run anywhere from $30,000 to $400,000. Funding for the Saltonstall-Kennedy grant program has not been set, though Daniel Namur, NOAA’s program manager for the S-K grants reiterated estimates Friday that peg the overall figure at between $5 million and $10 million.
