GLIN==> 2002 Lake Erie Protection Fund Large Grant Cycle RFP



2002 Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF)
Large Grant Cycle - Request for Pre-proposals


TOLEDO, OH - The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is pleased to announce that its 2002 Lake Erie Protection Fund Request for Pre-proposals (RFP) will be released Friday, February 15, 2002. The focus of this year's large grant cycle will be on Ohio research projects that specifically address the Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan. This plan consists of 84 strategic actions that are the blueprint by 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 $750,000 for the research grant cycle.
The Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan, RFP and the application can be downloaded from the Commission's website on February 15, 2002 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 $7.5 million through the Lake Erie License Plate Sales Program and other donations. Ohio artist Ben Richmond designed the special environmental plate, which features the Marblehead Lighthouse. License plate revenue is used to fund LEPF research and implementation grant projects focusing on improving Lake Erie and its waterways.
