Jul 31: The Great Lakes Commission announced the 2013 Great Lakes Basin Program for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Round Two grant programs. This year, the program offers two grant options, a small scale grant project and a larger watershed scale grant project. The due date for applications is 6:00 PM ET September 6, 2013. A total of $750,000 is available for grants.
GLC indicates that the program is all about making a difference -- in water quality, land use, and agricultural productivity. Initiated in 1991 and authorized in the 2002 and 2007 Farm Bills, the Federal/state partnership has supported well over 400 demonstration and technical assistance projects throughout the Great Lakes region. The Basin Program is coordinated by GLC in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Natural Resources Conservation Service), U.S. EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
