Pink Salmon Disaster Relief Funding
Hard to stay positive when this was a 2016 declaration!
Murkowski’s office reported that OMB has approved all the disaster relief funding components with the exception of the community aspect (2.4) and that NOAA will be dispersing those funds shortly to fishermen and processors. NOAA missed the June 1st deadline, so now the agency is aiming to release the grant funding by the next cycle on July 1st. Three years into this process, what is clear is that the only consistency with federal timelines is delay.
