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.
