EPA offering $14 Million in Grants for water quality trading projects

May 30, 2019

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is accepting applications for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) grants until July 12, 2019. EPA expects to award a total of $14 million for about 30 projects in five categories addressing excess nutrients and stormwater runoff. The GLRI was launched in 2010 to accelerate efforts to protect and restore the Great Lakes.

$12.5 million is available for projects that target the following priorities:

  • Riparian restoration to reduce runoff to the Maumee River
  • Green infrastructure to reduce stormwater runoff
  • Manure management to reduce nutrient runoff from farms
  • Accelerating adoption of nutrient management through farmer-led outreach and education

The remaining $1.5 million is set aside for four projects that promote cost-effective and market-based approaches to reducing excess nutrients to surface waters.

Eligible applicants are: Non-federal governmental entities, including state agencies, interstate agencies, federally recognized Indian tribes and tribal organizations, local governments, institutions of higher learning (i.e., colleges and universities), and non-profit organizations.

Learn more and apply here by July 12! If you need assistance submitting a competitive application, please contact P&N Project Manager Jason Washler, PE at 616–364–8491.
