The Great Lakes Fishery Trust’s Access to the Great Lakes Fishery grant category focuses on significantly increasing access to the Great Lakes fishery for shore-based angling and tribal commercial fishing, in Michigan.
Up to $500,000 is available for access projects in 2018.
The GLFT supports its access goals through a combination of competitive and funder-directed grantmaking. Supported activities may include:
1. Construction of new access sites
2. Upgrades and renovations to existing access sites
3. Engineering and feasibility studies for proposed access sites
4. Land acquisition to support subsequent access site development
