In 2013, grant funding will be awarded in three categories: Habitat Restoration; Delisting of Habitat-Related Beneficial Use Impairments; and Private Landowner Technical Assistance. To be eligible for funding, projects must occur within the Great Lakes basin. Eligible applicants include non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and state, tribal and local governments.
Approximately $59 million is expected to be available for grant awards. Individual awards will range from $25,000 to $1.5 million.
Sustain Our Great Lakes will host a webinar on January 15, 2013 to provide information about this funding opportunity. Webinar participants will learn about funding priorities and the application process, see examples of past projects, receive tips for submitting competitive proposals, and have the opportunity to ask questions. The webinar will begin at 11 AM Eastern Time/10 AM Central Time and last for approximately 1 hour.
