Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a Request for Applications soliciting proposals from states, municipalities, tribes, universities and nonprofit organizations for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grants to fund new projects that restore and protect the Great Lakes.  Up to $9.5 million will be available and grants will be awarded on a competitive basis for projects in the Great Lakes basin.  Applications are due August 14, 2013.

This round of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding will be used for projects that

  • reduce exposure to toxic substances from fish consumption
  • control invasive species
  • improve water quality in the Great Lakes

A webinar explaining the grant application process will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 30.  The Request for Applications and information about applying for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grants is available at www.epa.gov/grtlakes/fund/2013rfa01/.

More information about the Initiative, including an interactive project map, is available at www.glri.us.

Success Story

Whitehall’s recently-constructed Lake Street Project also received GRLI funding, by using stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) and furthering the EPA’s goals to reduce the amount and improve the quality of storm water entering White Lake.
