  • The Foundation is interested in promoting and investing in a program or research project that will have benefit to the recreational fishing community.

  • The Foundation may award one or multiple projects.
  • The maximum amount available for an individual project is $15,000. These funds may be used for on-the-ground habitat conservation and improvement projects, research, culture specific to species of recreational interest, or for projects that will in some other way benefit recreational fishermen in Southern New England
