The program is designed to be responsive to conservation opportunities, support higher-risk ideas at a low financial cost, and engage with small, local nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations on a global scale. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to support projects related to the Waitt Foundation mission of supporting sustainable fishing and marine protected areas (MPAs). Project funds will be distributed within two weeks of funding decisions, which are made on a monthly rolling basis throughout the year. In addition, spending of the funds must commence within one month of granting, and be completed within six months.
