Huon’s Helping Hand Guidelines

The Huon Aquaculture Grants Program provides financial and in-kind assistance to support community facilities, projects, events and programs that have a clear community benefit or need.

Assistance will be provided in the form of cash grants (maximum of $3,000) or in-kind assistance.
