Erosion and Sediment Control FUnding Available for Projects to Prevent 
Erosion, Address Sediment Control

Ann Arbor, Mich.óDoes your organization have an erosion prevention or 
sediment control project you would like to implement?  If so, the Great 
Lakes Basin Program for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control may be able to 
help fund it.   The Great Lakes Basin Program's FY2002 request for 
proposals (RFP) is now available from the Great Lakes Commission.  Since 
1991, the Great Lakes Basin Program has supported 182 projects totaling 
almost $5.25 million dollars.

These projects protect and improve Great Lakes water quality by controlling 
erosion and sedimentation, limiting the input of associated nutrients and 
toxic contaminants, and minimizing sources of sediment to the Great Lakes 
and their tributaries.  Projects may demonstrate effective erosion control 
techniques, provide program and technical assistance, or address 
information and education needs.  Applications are due by 6 p.m. (EST) on 
Jan. 16, 2002.

Eligible applicants include units of state, county and municipal 
government; tribal authorities; watershed councils; soil and water 
conservation districts; academic institutions; environmental groups; and 
other nonfederal public entities or nonprofit organizations in the United 

The Great Lakes Basin Program is a joint federal and state initiative with 
funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources 
Conservation Service and program coordination provided by the Great Lakes 
Commission.  A regional Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Task Force oversees 
the program and determines funding priorities.

"The Great Lakes Basin Program has helped fill a gap for natural resource 
protection in the Great Lakes basin by providing grants to a wide variety 
of local resource management agencies and nongovernmental organizations to 
undertake many innovative projects," said Task Force Chair, Jim Bredin, 
Assistant to the Director, Office of the Great Lakes, Michigan Department 
of Environmental Quality.  "One strength of the Basin Program is its 
ability to get funds quickly to successful applicants, allowing the project 
officers to implement goals in a timely manner."

This year, applications are only being accepted electronically which will 
streamline the proposal review process.  Request for proposals available 
at:  <http://www.glc.org/basin/RFP.html>http://www.glc.org/basin/RFP.html

If you have questions regarding the proposal process, please contact Tom 
Crane at tcrane@glc.org or 734-665-9135.
