About this grant

In December 2005, the Great Lakes governors endorsed a precedent-setting agreement that, once implemented, would provide new interstate protections against diversions outside of the Great Lakes basin and unwise water use within the basin. This grant increase will enable the National Wildlife Federation to support groups working to promote adoption of the agreement.
