The DEQ and Great Lakes Commission today announced $25,000 in small grants available to support local efforts to clean up Michigan rivers, streams and creeks.

Michigan’s Volunteer River, Stream and Creek Cleanup Program supports grants to local units of government to help clean up Michigan waterways. Local units of government may partner with nonprofit organizations or other volunteer groups to carry out the work. A 25 percent-minimum local match is required.

The program is funded by DEQ-collected fees from the sale of Michigan’s water quality protection license plates.

The application deadline is Jan. 22, 2013. The grant application package is available at www.glc.org/streamclean/app13.htm.  Applications are reviewed and assessed by the DEQ and Great Lakes Commission, with final decisions anticipated in early May 2013.
