Every year, the BBRSDA funds (or co-funds) a variety of projects that benefit the Bristol Bay salmon fishery and advance one or more of our strategic objectives. The board is soliciting two kinds of submissions for the 2014 cycle.

2014 Project Solicitation Guidelines

Project Proposals are submitted by permit-holders, municipalities, non-governmental organizations, private companies, research institutions or state and local agencies that are in a position to carry out the project they are proposing.  If you are submitting a Project Proposal, all items are required.

Project Concepts are submitted by BBRSDA members (S03T permit-holders). They areideas for projects that the board might consider funding. Project Concepts allow the board to gather a broad range of ideas from members who may not themselves be in a position to carry them forward. If you are submitting a Project Concept, you need only provide the items below that are underlined.

Required Information to Submit:

  • Proposer’s contact information.  Name, email and phone.
  • Acknowledgment of having read BBRSDA Strategic Plan and bylaws.
  • Identify the BBRSDA strategic objective addressed by the project.
  • Brief description of project – 250 words maximum.
  • Estimate of total project costs and amount needed from BBRSDA.  Identify other sources of funds.
  • Approximate date of project completion.
  • Proposals must be on one side of a single 8 ½ x 11 sheet (size 10 font or larger) and submitted electronically to info@bbrsda.com by December 16, 2013.  Subject line should read; “2014 Project Proposal” (or “Concept”).
