About this grant

In response to the growing need for improved water management in Michigan, the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council will work to establish a comprehensive water management policy at the state level. There is a critical need to build a broader base of support among water users, public officials and the general public through effective networking among environmental groups, thorough research and open dialogue among stakeholders.Multiyear funding will enable the council to build support among businesses, municipalities and water users; provide networking services to local groups and citizens; conduct research to inform the policy development process; disseminate research materials; and assist public officials with policy development.Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, established in 1979, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting water quality and promoting the wise use of water resources, including inland lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands and the Great Lakes shoreline.
