About this grant

The Ohio Environmental Council, a statewide environmental organization, leads efforts to protect and restore Lake Erie waterways. The grantee provides information and technical assistance to citizens, nonprofits, and decisionmakers. With prior Mott support, the grantee sought to implement the Great Lakes Compact, helped improve stormwater management policies, engaged in statewide and regional efforts to prevent invasive species, and invested in its own organizational capacity. With this renewal, the grantee will continue these efforts and explore new ways to build the capacity of watershed groups working in the Lake Erie ecosystem.
