About this grant

The Ohio Environmental Council, a statewide environmental organization, leads efforts to protect and restore the Lake Erie ecosystem. The grantee provides scientific, legal, and policy analyses and technical assistance to citizens, nonprofits, and decisionmakers. With prior Mott support, the grantee helped Ohio implement the Great Lakes Compact, 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 while also focusing on reducing pollutants into Lake Erie waterways.
