About this grant

The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative brings a bi-national coalition of mayors together to support the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes. With prior Mott support, the grantee worked to halt the spread of invasive species, encourage sustainable water management practices, reduce toxic algal blooms, and increase the grantee’s membership base. This renewal grant will allow the grantee to continue and expand these efforts.
