About this grant

The Institute for Conservation Leadership is a national technical assistance provider that builds the capacity of environmental organizations through training, consulting, facilitating, and coaching. With previous Mott support, the grantee helped strengthen freshwater groups in the Great Lakes region by assisting with strategic planning, fundraising, leadership development, board engagement, and other organizational development needs. With this renewal, the grantee will provide in-depth, capacity building support services to selected organizations and coalitions addressing high priority freshwater restoration and protection issues in the Great Lakes region. The grantee will also undertake a regional assessment of the capacity needs of freshwater groups.
