Grants to this Grantee
for the Center for Applied Environmental Law and Policy  
New Venture Fund is the fiscal sponsor of the Center for Applied Environmental Law and Policy program (CAELP), a small team of lawyers assembled to help coordinate and amplify existing legal capacity around immediate defensive caseload as well as longer-term, proactive legal and communications efforts. CAELP’s initial focus will be on the power and transportation sectors, including both defense of federal policy frameworks as well as the rights of states to go beyond federal mandates.
for the Salmon State Project  
Salmon supports a substantial part of Alaska’s economy, helps maintain subsistence fishing rights, and provides recreational fishing opportunities. The New Venture Fund’s Salmon State program seeks to secure state and federal policies in Alaska to protect the most important salmon spawning watersheds in the state necessary to support the state’s economy and the rights of Native Alaskans. The program will defend Bristol Bay and other key salmon habitat by engaging commercial and sport fishermen, Alaska Natives, and the public. These efforts will elevate a narrative about the shared value of salmon to Alaskans.
