2000 Lake Erie Protection Fund
Request for Pre-Proposals

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission announces that its 2000 Lake Erie Protection
Fund Request for Pre-Proposals (RFP) will be released on Wednesday, Feb.
16, 2000.  The focus of this cycle will be on Ohio research projects that
support the priorities of the Lake Erie Commission.

This RFP and the application can be obtained from the Commission web site
on Feb. 16 at www.epa.state.oh.us/oleo/.

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is comprised of the directors of the Ohio
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Departments of Natural Resources,
Transportation,  Development, Health and Agriculture.  The Ohio Lake Erie
Commission was established to preserve Lake Erie's natural resources,
protect the quality of waters and ecosystem, and promote economic
development of the region.

The Commission oversees the Ohio Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF).  Since
1992, the Ohio Lake Erie Commission has raised nearly $5 million through
the  Lake Erie License Plate Program. This specialty plate, featuring the
Marblehead Lighthouse, was designed by artist Ben Richmond.  License plate
revenue has been used to fund LEPF research and implementation grant
projects focusing on improving Lake Erie and its waterways.

The Commission will award research grants to Ohio institutions that will
provide valuable information or answer important questions of the Lake Erie
Commission agencies.  The Commission has budgeted $500,000 for the 2000
research grant cycle.

For more information on the Ohio Lake Erie Commission or the Lake Erie
Protection Fund, please contact the Commission at 419/245-2514 or
