R3 Grants

2018 STATE R3 PROGRAM GRANTS:

RBFF’s 2018 State R3 Program Grants help fund state programs that are sustainable and replicable angler and boater recruitment, retention and reactivation (R3) initiatives and plans that focus on increasing fishing license sales and boat registrations to help achieve 60 million anglers in 60 months.

The program is designed to support state R3 strategies that fall into one of two focus areas: (1) enhancing the capability of agencies to develop and implement effective angler and/or boater R3 efforts, and (2) implementing angler and/or boater retention or reactivation strategies to help increase participation to 60 million anglers in 60 months by utilizing RBFF’s Toolkits. Proposals are reviewed by RBFF staff and a Proposal Review Working Group, made up of industry Board members, Federal agency and NGO representatives.

RBFF is currently soliciting proposals for the 2018 State R3 Program Grants. Please view the 2018 State R3 Program Grants RFP and Application for full details. Proposals are due by 5:00pm Eastern Time on February 28, 2018 to Stephanie Hussey.
