The Great Lakes Protection Fund welcomes brief preproposals to test new regional actions to protect and restore the ecological health of the Great Lakes. We are ready to support a new set of project teams and we welcome the chance to discuss your ideas and explore how we can work together to make the Great Lakes healthier.
Preproposals received by August 3, 2015 can be considered for support at the Fund’s December 2015 board meeting. We welcome (and encourage) early submittals, inquiries and conversations.
Below are themes we are currently exploring. Please review them for ideas but they should not necessarily limit what you consider proposing. We are interested in your innovative ideas even if they don’t fit neatly into one of these categories.
· Prototypes of Insurance, Assurance & Financial Products for the Ecosystem
· Performance-Based Green Infrastructure Competition
· Smarter Water – Healthier Lakes
We welcome your ideas, questions, suggestions, solutions, and not-yet-fully-formed enquiries. Give us a call at 847-425-8150, leave a comment on the blog, or start a conversation.
