Starting in 2015 NANFA established the NANFA John Bondus Grant. The grant is designed to support organizations that are working to conserve native fish populations, habitats, and knowledge. This grant is intended to support current projects or ongoing efforts.
NANFA members in good standing will have the opportunity to nominate an organization to receive the grant. The grant committee with review the nominations and make a recommendation to the BOD on how to award the funds.
Last year, we didn't have nominations because we had just started the grant and didn't have time to take nominations and make a decision. The BOD voted to award the grant to Conservation Fisheries Inc.
The grant committee will take nominations from NANFA members until January 31st of the award year and make a decision March 31st on how to award the grant. In return, NANFA requests public acknowledgement of the grant (web-banner, t-shirt logo, etc.) and details on how the funds will be used for use in an article in American Currents.
We are now opening nominations for this grant. Nominations will be taken from NANFA members only and only one nomination per member. Please complete the form in the link below.
