Once again the European Fishing Tackle Trade Association (EFTTA) has this year set aside an overall budget of €40.000 in order to support youth fishing projects across Europe.
Previous projects supported by EFTTA include the World Junior & Youth Shore Championships 2008, Outdoor Experience at the River Aggar, Get Hooked on Sea Fishing and SportFish Junior Serbia to name a few.
All projects need to apply for the grant to the EFTTA Board and must recruit financial sponsorship from an existing EFTTA member before sending in an application (a list of EFTTA members can be found on the EFTTA website www.eftta.com). If awarded the grant, EFTTA will match the sponsorship from the EFTTA member up to a limit of €2.000. If you know of any youth fishing schemes that would benefit from this award please pass on this information. We would like to build on the success of previous years and look forward to welcoming new groups to the scheme.
In order to apply for the EFTTA Youth Grant, please send the following information to the EFTTA Secretariat before 1st October 2009.
