Under the 2019 Invitation, up to $1M is available for funding of research projects addressing the region’s declined Chinook salmon populations. Projects will be selected for funding in spring 2019, with contracting completed by May 1st in time for the 2019 field season.
The 2019 Invitation includes two components:
- 2019 AYK SSI Research Priorities & Proposal Submission Instructions, (MS Word file) lists our RFP priority “Research Themes,” and provides instructions, formatting requirements and the proposal template required for submission as well as information about our on-line proposal submission system.
- 2019 AYK SSI Budget Forms, (MS Excel file) includes instructions and required budget forms which must be uploaded to our on-line proposal submission system along with your completed proposal narrative.
An important goal of our program is to build the capacity of local and regional entities to participate in fisheries research. As described in the submission instructions, projects should include appropriate partners and contribute, to the maximum degree possible, to the capacities of agencies, local communities, and residents of the region to participate in fishery research.
