Apply for Funding

The 2018 Great Lakes Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Program (GLSNRP) Request for Proposals (RFP) has now closed.

Application Deadline: March 26, 2018 at 6:00 pm EDT.

Applications will be reviewed and assessed by the Sedimentation and Nutrient Reduction Task Force, with final decisions anticipated in June 2018. Selected projects should begin on October 1, 2018, and may be up to three years in duration.

Under this year’s program, proposed projects were asked to focus on implementing nutrient management / 4R-type programs and reducing sediment and phosphorus runoff into the Great Lakes through the installation of long-term practices. Projects may take either a watershed scale or site-specific approach to these objectives. Please refer to the 2018 RFP for more details.

It is anticipated that roughly $800,000 in funding will be available for projects awarded in 2018. Applicants must be nonfederal units of government, tribes, or incorporated nonprofit organizations. A 25% match will be required of each project.
