Interagency Funding Guide for Great Lakes Restoration Initiative - Focus on invasive spp

An Interagency Funding Guide has been developed in order to provide one-stop-shopping for applicants interested in applying for over $250 million in grants and project agreements which would be expected to be available through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (if the full $475 million for the Initiative is appropriated). These grants and project agreements are intended to jump-start achievement of the Initiative's long term goals: safely eating the fish and swimming at our beaches, assuring safe drinking water, and providing a healthy ecosystem for fish and wildlife. The Interagency Funding Guide is available at:
http://www.epa.gov/greatlakes/glri/fundingguide2009_r1.pdf

Note that pp 3-5 of the document describe funding opportunities for research, control and prevention of invasive species.

Be sure to regularly check http://nyisri.org/Funding.aspx for invasive species funding updates and full RFP's as they become available.
