Michigan Provides Framework for It's Share of Federal Great Lakes Restoration Money

by

UNDATED -- The state recently posted on a website the framework it will use when applying for a share of 475 million dollars set aside for the federal Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

Michigan may seek grants to continue restoration in areas such as the Saginaw Bay, Kalamazoo River and the Huron-Erie corridor. Also, the state could focus on the cleanup of contaminated sediment and mercury pollution.

Also mentioned in the funding documents are priorities like fighting invasive species, preventing the further spread of the Emerald Ash Borer, regulating ballast water discharge, public education about fish consumption, and beach cleanup.
