About this grant
Midwest Environmental Advocates is a Wisconsin-based nonprofit that provides technical assistance to communities to sustain clean and abundant fresh water. Prior Mott support has helped the grantee raise awareness, forge new caucuses of leaders on clean water issues and protect against harmful diversions of Great Lakes water. This grant will allow the grantee to protect groundwater that feeds Lake Michigan from dairy pollution, ensure water withdrawal proposals for new industries comply with strict requirements, and deepen the engagement of new groups it has formed beyond awareness to action.
