Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

The President's 2010 Budget submitted to Congress on May 7th includes $475M for a "Great Lakes Restoration Initiative". You can read more about it at http://www.epa.gov/greatlakes/glri/index.html, where a plan document is given in the fourth paragraph. Quoting from that site:

Early in the summer of 2009, one or more Requests for Proposals will be announced for competitive grants advancing the Initiative, in order that some grants may be issued as early as December, 2009.

Throughout the summer of 2009, the Interagency Task Force will work to develop a Great Lakes Restoration plan for 2011 and beyond.
