Lake program seeks proposals for water quality grants

GRAND ISLE — The Lake Champlain Basin Program seeks proposals for projects that improve water quality and ecosystems in the Lake Champlain watershed. The program anticipates awarding more than 75 grants totaling more than $890,000 to local organizations, municipalities, and educational institutions. The grants will support projects that advance the goals of the long-term Lake Champlain management plan Opportunities for Action (plan.lcbp.org).
Grants will be awarded in five categories:
•  Pollution prevention & habitat conservation grants (up to $20,000 per award),
•  Aquatic invasive species spread prevention grants (up to $15,000 per award),
•  Small education and outreach grants (up to $10,000 per award),
•  Large education and outreach grants ($15,000-$50,000 per award),
•  Organizational support grants (up to $4,000 per award).
Local organizations play a critical role in implementing projects on the ground to achieve water quality and habitat protection goals. Since 1992, LCBP has awarded more than $8 million to more than 1,100 projects in New York and Vermont.
Grant guidelines and applications for each category can be found on the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s website at lcbp.org/grants. Volunteer peer reviewers will evaluate the proposals and develop the funding recommendations for the Lake Champlain Steering Committee to consider. Electronic versions of proposals must be received by [email protected] no later than 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 20.
