Implementing Actions in Support of Recovery of Atlantic Salmon and Their Ecosystems: The Gulf of Maine Distinct Population Segment of Atlantic salmon is one of the eight critically endangered species included in the Species in the Spotlight: Survive to Thrive initiative. This initiative involves targeted efforts vital for stabilizing these species and preventing their extinction. We are soliciting competitive proposals for grants and cooperative agreements that work to address any of the four key actions identified in the Atlantic Salmon 5-Year Action Plan ( We are also soliciting proposals that will develop and implement new education/outreach and engagement tools (e.g., interactive displays, exhibits, kiosks, etc.) or activities highlighting the biology, status and threats faced by Atlantic salmon and their ecosystems. These outreach and education projects must be in support of the International Year of the Salmon initiative. Total funding available under this notice is not anticipated to exceed $600,000. Actual funding availability for this program is contingent upon FY 2017 Federal appropriations. NOAA anticipates typical federal funding awards will range from $50,000 to $300,000 over one to two years. NOAA will not accept proposals with a federal funding request of less than $50,000 or more than $300,000 over two years. Award amounts will be determined by the proposals and available funds; two or more awards may be granted.
