2013 Prescott Grant Proposals

2015 | 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008-2001

The nationwide solicitation period closed on October 3, 2012.

NOTE: The President's FY13 budget request did not include funding for the John H. Prescott Grant Program in FY2013. This is not a final funding decision, but a budget proposal to Congress. Congress makes the final funding decision when passing FY13 appropriation bills. NMFS accepted applications for the FY13 grant cycle to be prepared if Congress provides funding for FY13. See our briefing for the stranding network for more information on the FY13 budget proposal and Prescott Grant Program [pdf].
