Grant Description
Grants to USA bass fishing organizations and groups for conservation projects. Funding is intended to engage youth in projects that benefit fisheries. Eligible activities include protecting and enhancing fish habitats, boater and angler access to public waters, addressing aquatic invasive species, best practices in tournament fish care, addressing pollution, and conservation education.

The Bass Fishing Hall of Fame Grant Program was created to help provide funds to approved projects. Through grass roots bass organizations, our goal is to encourage youth-oriented conservation projects that benefit local fisheries.

Qualified projects must directly involve youth in such a way as to teach the importance of resource stewardship and the leadership role that anglers play as conservationists. Each project must have an endorsement of the local fisheries management agency and work to accomplish goals of mutual benefit. The project must have an evaluation component to determine success. A project may be part of a larger project and working with partners is strongly encouraged. Having already obtained matching funds and/or donations of materials and/or in-kind services increase a project's value. The project must demonstrate a good investment for the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame (e.g. in terms of feasibility, accountability and financial leverage.)

The project focus should include 1 or more of the categories below:

  • Make a significant contribution to protect or enhance natural or artificial fish habitat; or...
  • Prevent, manage or eliminate aquatic invasive species via action or education/outreach; or...
  • Demonstrate best-practices in tournament fish care to maximize survival of released fish; or....
