Apply for Funding

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

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

Under this year’s program, proposed projects should 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 RFP for more details.

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

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.

For more information, contact Nicole Zacharda at or 734-971-9135.
