New Infographic Explains Farm Bill Program that Benefits the Great Lakes

Yesterday the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, announced the recipients of the first round of grant funding from the Regional Conservation Partnership Program, a new program under the 2014 Farm Bill. The RCPP provides funding under three categories: national, state, and critical conservation area—including the Great Lakes. Projects funded by the RCPP will tackle water pollution issues, nutrient runoff, and fish and wildlife habitat restoration. The Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition is excited for these first round of grants that will benefit the Great Lakes and beyond. You can read more about the program and see a cool infographic made by the USDA on Secretary Vilsack’s blog.
