2020 Marine Education and Training (MET) Mini Grant Program
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA/NMFS) is soliciting competitive applications for the 2020 Pacific Islands Region Marine Education and Training (MET) Mini-Grant Program. Projects are being solicited to improve communication, education, and training on marine resource issues throughout the region and increase scientific education for marine-related professions among coastal community residents, including indigenous Pacific islanders, Native Hawaiians and other underrepresented groups in the region. Projects should prepare communities for employment in marine related professions, increase seafood and fishing safety, marketing, or management; or increase the sustainability of fishing practices through technology improvements or data collection.
