This is just a reminder that the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition has up to $104,000 in funding available to help groups participate in federal Great Lakes restoration efforts. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so apply today if you are interested in this grant.
The Coalition will be providing seed grants of up to $15,000 to groups that are ready to lead Great Lakes restoration projects, but that may not have all of the needed resources or capacity to go after larger federal grants. Coalition grants help groups create partnerships and do initial studies, baseline measurements, community outreach, or other projects that will make their federal funding application stronger and more competitive. The program funds a variety of Great Lakes restoration work, from projects that benefit wetland conservation and remove invasive species to programs that train citizens to monitor stream health. Coalition member Freshwater Future administers the program.
