Michigan Volunteer River, Stream and Creek Cleanup Grants Available for 2009

The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) and the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality (MDEQ) are pleased to announce the release of the 2009
Grant Application Package (GAP) for Michigan's Volunteer River, Stream and
Creek Cleanup Program (VRSCCP). A total of $25,000 (plus carryover from FY
2008) is available under the program for Fiscal Year (FY) 2008. This funding
is provided by the MDEQ through fees collected from the sale of the State's
Water Quality Protection license plates (Public Act 74 of 2000). The
application deadline for Volunteer River, Stream and Creek Cleanup grants is
Friday, February 13, 2009.

The Michigan VRSCCP provides small grants to local units of government to
help implement the cleanup and improvement of the waters of Michigan's
rivers, streams, and creeks. Local units of government may partner with
nonprofit organizations or other volunteer groups to carry out the cleanups.
There is a minimum local match requirement of 25 percent of the total
project costs.

The Volunteer Stream Cleanup GAP and application instructions are available
online at http://www.glc.org/streamclean/app09. The GAP contains detailed
instructions, including eligibility requirements and other information for
developing a proposal, evaluation criteria, and items that should be
included with your application. Applications will be reviewed and assessed
by GLC and MDEQ staff, with final decisions anticipated in March 2009.
Contractual arrangements will be facilitated by the GLC, which is
administering the VRSCCP on behalf of the MDEQ.

Again, the deadline for submitting grant applications under the FY 2009
Volunteer River, Stream and Creek Cleanup Program is February 13, 2009. If
you have questions regarding the GAP or your application, please contact
Laura Kaminski at the Great Lakes Commission at 734-971-9135 or
laurak@glc.org.

Thank you for your interest in cleaning up Michigan's water resources!
