$300 million provided for Great Lakes restoration in 2014!

Congress finalized 2014 appropriations and provided full funding of $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

This reflects the president’s request and a $15 million increase from last year.

Congress also provided $1.45 billion for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and $906 million for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs.

This is another important victory for our regional Great Lakes restoration program and testament to importance of this work and the effectiveness of our ongoing communications with Congress.

Thank you to everyone who is contributing to our restoration efforts and communicating their importance to Congress. 

Your voices make a difference!
