COVID-19 grants for fishermen & seafood businesses

The Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust (FCFCT) and Seafarers UK, with a group of trusted partners, have developed the COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant Programme (RRGP).

The Rapid Response fund works to assist food charities, fishing and seafood businesses:

1. Seeking diversification opportunities for seafood and fisheries businesses
2. Promoting the consumption or sale of local seafood
3. Providing community meals using seafood

The programme made a range of grants available, as follows:

– Up to £4,000 for applications where the main beneficiary is a single registered company
– Up to £10,000 for community-focused projects involving multiple companies or stakeholders
– Up to £25,000 for scalable projects and initiatives that support multiple businesses, stakeholders and benefit communities (i.e. Fishing Associations, Auctions / Markets, Producer Organisations)

THE RRGP IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS
