Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grants to Support Great Lakes State Aquatic Invasive/Nuisance Species Management Plans: Under FY14 appropriations to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) anticipates providing grants to support implementation of up to 3 Great Lakes State Aquatic Invasive/Nuisance Species Management Plans (Plans) not previously funded under FY14 GLRI. Grant awards will be used by states for activities that directly relate to the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and Great Lakes Basin. A grant funded under this program will require, within 1 year of the grant agreement becoming fully effective, completion of either one rapid response training session or one rapid response action. Only states, who have not previously been allocated grant awards under FY14 GLRI Plan competition, can apply to this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). To be eligible for FY14 funding to implement State Plans, FY10 grant funds must be completely expended, and FY11 funds must be fully expended by April 30, 2015. Also, allocation of funding will require, within 1 year of the grant agreement becoming fully executed, completion of either one rapid response training session or one rapid response action. Also, state agencies must have completed a rapid rapid response plan. Please include the completed state rapid response plan as an attachment in your grant application.
Two-year grant awards will be used by states for activities that directly relate to the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and Great Lakes Basin. Priorities for funding will include:
- Implementing risk management approaches for species and pathways as described in GLMRIS reports (http://glmris.anl.gov/)
- Developing and implementing an Asian carp prevention and management plan for the Great Lakes
- Addressing climate change in risk assessment and management activities. Refer to the NOFA for additional grant evaluation criteria.
