2001 Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF)
Request for Pre-proposals


The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is pleased to announce that its 2001 Lake Erie
Protection Fund Request for Pre-proposals (RFP) will be released Friday,
February 2, 2001. The focus of this year's grant cycle will be on Ohio
implementation projects that specifically address the Lake Erie Protection &
Restoration Plan. This plan consists of 84 strategic actions that are the
blueprint by the which the agencies of the Commission will continue their
efforts to protect and restore Ohio's portion of Lake Erie and its
watershed.

The Commission has budgeted $1.2 million for the implementation grant cycle.
The Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan, RFP and the application can be
downloaded from the Commission website on February 2, 2001 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 $5.5 million through
the Lake Erie License Plate Sales 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.
