R3 Grants


RBFF’s 2021 State R3 Program Grants help fund state programs that are sustainable and replicable and have a focus on retaining anglers and boaters and foster long-term participation.

The program is designed to support state agencies in implementing angler and/or boater customer engagement strategies to help retain current, new and returning anglers and boaters from 2020 to increase participation. Proposals are reviewed by RBFF staff and a Proposal Review Working Group, made up of industry Board members and NGO representatives.

RBFF is no longer soliciting proposals for the 2021 State R3 Program Grants. The RFP for the next grants cycle will be available in late 2021. Please view the 2021 State R3 Program Grants RFP and Application for current program information for the 2021 grants.
