About this grant

Founded in 1970 as the Lake Michigan Federation, the Alliance for the Great Lakes seeks to conserve and restore the Great Lakes freshwater ecosystem through policy reform, public education, and local conservation projects. This grant increase is available for the general purpose of the organization, to include conducting polling in the Great Lakes states to evaluate public attitudes toward the Great Lakes, especially attitudes towards invasive species, and to create public education materials and work with partners to communicate information based on polling and research findings.
