For 50 years, Clean Wisconsin has been Wisconsin’s leading voice for clean air and water. Clean Wisconsin seeks to provide all residents with access to healthy air and clean drinking water; provide residents, businesses, and visitors an abundance of swimmable, fishable lakes, rivers, and streams; and promote an economy that is strong and powered by clean energy. With previous project support, the grantee has delivered public education campaigns to prevent harmful diversions of Great Lakes water, reduce pollution sources contaminating drinking water supplies, remove lead pipes, and advance clean water policies and funding. With this general purposes grant, Clean Wisconsin will pursue all of its objectives around climate change, clean energy, clean air and clean water. This will include efforts to strengthen clean water policies by educating the public, its members, the media and decision makers about programs to protect and restore the Great Lakes; continue to grow its presence with tribes in northern Wisconsin and urban areas of southeast Wisconsin thus elevating voices in underserved areas; develop leadership training for its staff and board; and conduct research to build strong communications programs around Great Lakes issues.
