Illinois Receives $1.75 million for Coastal Restoration

Local governments in Illinois are now eligible to apply for up to $1.75 million from the DNR for coastal protection and restoration projects. This money was made available as a compromise to the failed Conservation and Reinvestment Act of 2000. With only 63 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline in Illinois, the Federation is confident that this money can go a long way toward restoration of natural habitats along the lakefront. We will be working with several local agencies in northeast Illinois in hopes of moving habitat projects forward.
