EPA Announces Nutrient Reduction Grants for Great Lakes

(June 4, 2019) - The EPA announced an application process for $14 million worth of grants to help reduce nutrients in the Great Lakes Basin.  The grants will be focused on reducing nutrients from agricultural and stormwater runoff and are being issued pursuant to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) action plan.  NACWA has successfully advocated in recent years for strong federal funding for EPA’s geographical programs like the GLRI and is pleased to see the funds being made available.

NACWA encourages members in the Great Lakes to consider applying for these funds.  An informational webinar will be held on June 6, and applications are due by July 12.  More information is available on EPA’s website.
