The Bristol Bay RSDA is soliciting two kinds of submissions for the 2013 grant-funding cycle:
Project proposals are welcomed from 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.
Project Concepts are submitted by BBRSDA members (S03T permit-holders). They are ideas for things that the board should consider exploring or funding with assessed funds. Project Concepts allow the board to gather a broad range of ideas from people who may not themselves be in a position to carry them forward.
Note: If you are submitting a Project Concept, you need only provide the items belowthat are underlined. If you are submitting a Project Proposal, all items are required.
REQUIRED INFORMATION TO SUBMIT ONE-PAGE PRE-PROPOSAL

- Identify the BBRSDA Strategic Objective addressed by the project.
