How to apply...
Complete application information can be found on the Office of Subsistence Management website at: http://alaska.fws.gov/asm/home.html or, if unable to access the website a proposal package containing specific requirement information can be requested from Attn: Kathy Orzechowski, Program Specialist, Office of Subsistence Management, Fisheries Information Service Division, 3601 C Street, Suite 1030, Anchorage, Alaska, 99503.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Study proposals are reviewed and evaluated by staff and an interagency technical review committee. This committee is comprised of representatives from each of five Federal agencies involved with subsistence management, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Once a project is selected for funding, an agreement between Fish and Wildlife Service and the recipient is drafted by the Office of Subsistence Management (OSM). The agreement is processed by OSM through the contracting office and sent to the recipient for signature. The agreement is considered executed when signed copies of the agreement are received from the recipient and Contracting has obligated funds to the agreement. The agreements are administered by OSM.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
