established for the purpose of preserving Lake Erie's natural resources, 
protecting the quality of its waters and ecosystem, and promoting economic 
development of the region.

The commission oversees the Ohio Lake Erie Protection Fund (LEPF). During 
the last 12 years, the commission has raised more than $7.5 million through 
the sale of Lake Erie license plates. This money is used to fund LEPF 
grants that focus on improving the quality of Lake Erie and to furthering 
the goals laid out in the Lake Erie Protection & Restoration Plan.
