This summer the Healing Our Waters Coalition (HOW), in partnership with Freshwater Future, was able to provide 12 groups with funding they need to either apply for a federal grant under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) or help ensure they are equipped to manage and complete effective projects with GLRI. The HOW Coalition organized five years ago to obtain federal funding to restore the health of the Great Lakes. With the GLRI funds now in place, the HOW Coalition’s Implementation Program is designed to help groups access these federal resources and augment funding to help groups achieve success with their projects. Successful restoration projects will help the HOW Coalition sustain support from the federal government to clean up, restore and heal the Great Lakes.
