Funding Restored to Two Great Lakes Programs

January 20, 2014

Congress released its 2014 spending bill last week, providing the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative with $300 million and the Clean Water State revolving fund with $1.44 billion, up from $285 million and $1.37 billion in 2013.

“The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative supports efforts to clean up toxic pollution, restore fish and wildlife habitat, fight invasive species, and reduce runoff from cities and farms.

“The Clean Water State Revolving Fund provides low-interest loans to communities across the nation to upgrade sewage infrastructure. The loan program distributes funding to all 50 states based on a fixed formula. The 2014 spending bill would provide about $530 million to the Great Lakes states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.”   (Source: Great Lakes Coalition)
