Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to USA and territories government agencies, tribes, nonprofit organizations, ports, and educational institutions in eligible locations for environmental projects. Funding is intended for the conservation and preservation of species and habitats. The purpose of this program is to facilitate the proper disposal of retired and derelict commercial fishing gear for recycling and for energy conversion through providing a system of disposal bins at select ports across the country. Grants will target USA coastal communities’ waters.

Program Priorities:

  1. Bin Host: The Fishing for Energy Bin Program provides funding to maintain an existing port in the program or establish a new port opportunity for fishing communities to recycle and to convert to energy retired and/or derelict fishing gear. Applicants may also propose short-term event bins.
  2. Capacity and Logistics Development: Some communities need additional capacity or must confront other barriers to develop a logistics plan to host a Fishing for Energy bin. Under this priority, applicants may apply for funding to build the capacity and address barriers to establishing logistics and operations at ports and with waste haulers and entities processing end of life fishing gear. NFWF is interested in projects that develop opportunities to engage alternative (or non-landfill) disposal facilities (e.g. recyclers, upcyclers, waste-to-energy facilities, etc.). This priority will support applicants to build the needed capacity for comprehensive logistics for port communities interested in implementing a long-term bin program. The desired outcome of an award under this priority would be a port that is fully prepared to submit a proposal under the Bin Host priority upon project completion.
