Volunteer Stream Monitoring Grant Program


Grants are available to local units of government and nonprofit entities for water quality monitoring in Michigan's wadable streams and rivers. The newly-formed Clean Water Corps program will provide training to grantees to ensure quality data collection. Data produced under the grant program will be used by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) as a screening tool to identify sites requiring more detailed assessments and as supplemental data for DEQ water resources management programs.    


The Volunteer Stream Monitoring Grant Application Package (GAP) and application instructions are available online at http://www.glc.org/micorps/gap05. All applications must also be submitted online via this web site. The GAP contains detailed instructions for developing a proposal, proposal evaluation criteria, and items to include with your application. 


About the Michigan Clean Water Corps


The Michigan Clean Water Corps was created through an executive order by Governor Jennifer M. Granholm to assist the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in collecting and sharing water quality data for use in water resources management and protection programs.
