Research granted: Michigan organizations receive $880,000 in coastal funding0
A recent collection of grants worth approximately $880,000 from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will pave the way for many Great Lakes programs and research. Grants included $100,000 for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to study fish communities and habitats as well as $50,000 for Central Michigan University to study birds and bats in coastal areas of the states. In addition to wildlife conservation, water quality will also be studied thanks to a grant for the Michigan Technological University to study streams affected by mining.
Other grants were awarded to non-profits, more government agencies and universities as well as coastal communities.
