Freshwater Future is excited to announce the projects funded for the Spring 2008 Grant Cycle. 10 great projects were funded, totaling $25,500.

If you would like more information about our Spring 2008 Grant Award winners, please see www.freshwaterfuture.org.
As part of the grants program, we have matched each of our new grantees with an experienced grassroots advocate who will serve as a mentor.
All the hard work and dedication by these and all grassroots groups around the Great Lakes continue to amaze us. We are constantly reminded that we are not alone in our struggle to protect and restore the Great Lakes. And sometimes that is just the inspiration we all need! Congratulations to all the Spring 2008 Grant Recipients and best of luck with your projects.
