A special targeted grant cycle is available to fund two projects that address this year’s priorities for the Lake Erie Protection Fund as established by the Ohio Lake Erie Commission. One project will be funded for each of the two priorities that were established for state fiscal year 2009. A separate application package has been developed for each priority and is available on the Commission’s website.
The LEPF focuses on projects which lead to better management decisions, both for environmental protection and economic development, while implementing Strategic Objectives laid out in the Lake Erie Protection and Restoration Plan 2008 (LEPR 2008).
The two priorities for this year are: Algal Biomass and Dissolved Reactive Phosphorus and Analysis of Soil Testing Labs.
Application packets for both priorities are available at http://lakeerie.ohio.gov.
Proposals are due February 5, 2009.
