About this grant

The Environmental Law and Policy Center is a leading public interest environmental law organization based in Chicago with offices throughout the Great Lakes region. With prior Mott support, the grantee cataloged and reported on Clean Water Act permit violations and enforcement in the Great Lakes region. The grantee also monitored polluted runoff from large-scale farm animal operations in the western Lake Erie basin. With renewed support, the Environmental Law & Policy Center will expand its work on nutrient pollution to Wisconsin and engage at the federal level to build support for Great Lakes protection and restoration.
