Dear friends and Great Lakes Guardians,
We share an incredible resource in the Great Lakes, one that is valuable not only for shipping, and agriculture and industry, but for our quality of life. The lakes provide us with, drinking water, fish, a cooling swim on a hot day, or a walk along a sandy beach. They are also home to thousands of creatures; fish, birds, sediment-dwelling organisms and plants that all need to be protected.
That's where we can use your help. Ontario is calling on not-for-profit community groups, youth groups, schools, First Nations and Métis communities and other local groups to help protect and restore their part of the Great Lakes by applying for a Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund grant.
The fund, now in its fourth year, supports community projects with a direct environmental benefit such as:
You can get a grant of up to $25,000 for your project. Smaller projects are also encouraged. This year's fund will award $1.5 million in total for eligible projects. Since 2012, $4.5M has been awarded to 221 community-based projects.
Projects must be completed by February 2017.
I strongly encourage you or your group to apply for a grant. Be a Great Lakes Guardian. Help us restore, protect, and conserve our Great Lakes to keep them drinkable, swimmable and fishable. Together we can make a real difference in Great Lakes communities across the province.
How to apply:
Applications will be accepted until October 23, 2015
