|Estimated Contract Value
The Monitoring Program provides over $6 million annually in funding to support research on and monitoring of Federal subsistence fisheries in Alaska. The funding commitments to multiple year projects influence the amount of funding available for new projects. For 2016, we anticipate that on the order of $4 million will be available to fund roughly 40 new research and monitoring projects that provide information needed to manage subsistence fisheries for rural Alaskans on Federal lands, remaining funding is obligated to existing projects. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service mayaward multiple cooperative agreements for selected fisheries investigation projects. Continuation of funding for year two, three or four of multiple-year projects is contingent upon attainment of the study objectives and availability of future government funding. Historically, awards have ranged from $3,000 to $375,000 per year.
