Pre-proposal submission system now online.
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.
