Recreational Fishing Industry Grant Application Form

Thank you for your interest in applying for a small grant to assist with uninsured physical or revenue losses from Hurricane Irma. This program is open to individuals and small businesses in the Florida recreational fishing industry, including fishing guides and individuals who may work in related businesses.

Because funds are currently limited, many deserving individuals and businesses may not receive grants, but all applications will be retained and reconsidered as additional funds are procured.

We encourage you to submit your application by Wednesday, Nov. 22nd to be considered for this first round of funding. Decisions will be made and funds distributed by Friday, November 30th.

Please fill out and submit the form below. If you sustained physical damage, we also ask that you provide up to five photos of the damage you’ve sustained and if you have them, a “before”/pre-Irma photo or two. Please email your photographs to

We wish you well with your ongoing recovery work.
