Waterway Cleanup Grants, Deadline Feb. 20

. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and Great Lakes Commission today announced the availability of $25,000 for small grants to support local efforts to clean up Michigan rivers, streams and creeks.

Michigan’s Volunteer River, Stream, and Creek Cleanup Program provides grants to local units of government to help clean Michigan waterways. Local units of government may partner with nonprofit organizations or other volunteer groups to carry out the work. A 25 percent minimum local match is required.

The program is funded by fees from the sale of Michigan’s specialty water quality protection license plates, available from the Secretary of State’s Office.

The application deadline is Feb. 20, 2018.  Applications are reviewed and assessed by the MDEQ and Great Lakes Commission, with final decisions anticipated in early May 2018.
