About this grant
American Rivers, a national organization based in Washington, D.C., with offices in the Great Lakes region, is dedicated to protecting and restoring freshwater resources. With prior Mott support, the grantee worked at the municipal and state levels in the Great Lakes region to promote water conservation, support the use of green stormwater infrastructure, and identify best practices for coordinating urban water management decisions. With renewed support, the grantee will continue these activities with a specific focus on urban areas and will develop a Great Lakes-focused strategic plan to guide efforts over the next five years.
