E-M:/ GLIN==> Great Lakes Air Deposition Program Seeking Pre-Proposals for Projects




Projects Sought to Address Persistent Toxic Substance Deposition to the
Great Lakes

Pre-Proposals Due March 2, 2009

Application materials at www.glc.org/glad/

The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) requests project proposals under its Great
Lakes Air Deposition (GLAD) program.  The purpose of the GLAD program is to
safeguard the environment and human health from the adverse effects of
atmospherically deposited toxic contaminants in the Great Lakes region.
This program supports scientific investigation and the development of
assessment tools to identifying the magnitude, sources and impacts of toxic
contaminant deposition within the region and to facilitate concerted and
strategic actions to mitigate such impacts.

Proposals should focus on contaminants of concern for atmospheric deposition
in the Great Lakes region and should demonstrate a likelihood that the
contaminant(s) being examined are depositing to the region's waterways from
the atmosphere in a quantity that may cause adverse impacts to humans or
wildlife.  Proposals must describe tangible benefits delivered to the Great
Lakes states
and how projects will assist the state agencies and their partners in taking
informed actions toward assessing and reducing the occurrence and impact of
atmospheric deposition of toxic substances.

The 2009 RFP identifies priority project areas that are specifically
targeted to be addressed in the upcoming year:
*       Impacts of atmospherically deposited toxic pollutants on Great Lakes
wildlife
*       Effects of climate change on toxic deposition and bioaccumulation
*       Great Lakes Coordinated Science and Monitoring Initiative
*       Demonstrate the influence of remaining local, continental and
controllable sources
*       Characterize emissions from burning of agricultural plastics
*       Flame Retardants
