Grants of up to $10,000 to USA and territories government agencies, tribes, nonprofit organizations, ports, and educational institutions 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. Priority will be given to maintain existing Fishing for Energy bin ports with the potential to add additional ports, funds permitting.

Program Priorities:

The Fishing for Energy Bin Program provides funding to entities to provide interested communities small grants to maintain an existing port in the program or establish a new port opportunity for fishing communities to recycle old or unused fishing gear. Projects can also propose event bins.  For more information, see the URL for Full Text below.
