The 2017 Sea Grant Aquaculture Initiative includes two competitive funding opportunities. The Woods Hole Sea Grant Program is responsible for some preliminary steps, including determining a maximum of three proposals that can be submitted for one of the competitions, and gathering and submitting Letters of Intent for the other competition. Please read the Initiative RFPs carefully before submitting a Letter of Intent as we will be evaluating the letters for the smaller competition as a basis for selecting ideas that can be the basis for a maximum of three full proposals.
