CARES Act Relief for Fisheries Participants
On May 7, 2020, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce announced allocations of Section 12005 CARES Act fisheries assistance funding to all coastal states and territories. Alaska was allocated $50 million of the $300 million available for the program. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game CARES Act Relief for Fisheries Participants Final Spend Plan provides eligibility criteria for participants in each of the eligible sectors, which are seafood processing, commercial harvesting, sport charter, subsistence, and aquaculture. The spending plan allocates 100% of available funds as direct payments to fishery participants in eligible sectors. While all sectors have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, available funds will only cover a portion of the losses incurred by affected fishery participants.
The deadline for postmarking commercial harvester, sport fishing charter, seafood processing, and aquaculture sector applications is 4/23/2021. All applications must be received no later than 5:00 pm PDT on 4/30/2021 if uploading to the ShareFile site provided in the application.
The deadline for postmarking subsistence user applications is 5/21/2021. All applications must be received no later than 5:00 pm PDT on 05/28/2021 if uploading to the ShareFile site provided in the application.
