About this grant

The Bonneville Environmental Foundation’s Change the Course program is a unique initiative that has been piloted in the Colorado River basin and Georgia. The grantee will bring the program to the Great Lakes region, starting in Michigan. Change the Course partners with corporations to raise funds for projects, designed with local nongovernmental organizations, to address high-priority water protection needs. The program has identified more than 20 prospective corporate partners, and initiated a first project to address drinking water safety in Flint.
