The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act identified $300 million for fisheries and aquaculture. The Commission has been notified by the Department of Commerce that they will be assisting fishery participants affected by COVID-19 in multiple states, territories, and West Coast Tribes. The distribution of funds will be determined by the spend plans prepared by the states, territories, and West Coast Tribes. The Commission is working with the entities to receive these spend plans in a timely manner so we can begin distributing funds. As details become available, we will update our website.
California and Oregon CARES Act applications periods have closed. AK, WA, HI, GU, AS, and CNMI are NOT available at this time.
