Fishing for Energy

Grant Application Deadline: 
Tuesday, March 30, 2021

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has funding available through the Fishing for Energy program (a partnership between NOAA, Covanta, and Schnitzer Steel) to facilitate the collection and proper disposal of retired and derelict commercial fishing gear for recycling and for energy conversion by supporting the placement of disposal bins at select ports across the U.S. The Fishing for Energy bin program provides small awards to grantees to meet their disposal costs and then renew these awards as needed.
