On June 6, 2023, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced historic funding for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The department highlighted plans to implement $3.3 billion in investments focused on ensuring America’s communities and economy are ready for and resilient to climate change.

As part of this funding, NOAA reserved $20 million to work with the nation’s eight regional fishery management councils on tackling the impacts of climate change. This webpage will host the New England Fishery Management Council’s proposals for IRA funding and, subsequently, the Council’s work on IRA-funded projects.
