Share this post

Indiana DNR
The Department of Natural Resource's Lake Michigan Coastal Program is seeking public input on how to spend funds for the 2015 funding cycle.  According the DNR, funds may be spent a variety of ways including public access or habitat improvements, purchasing land, planning and coordination, education and outreach, and applied research projects.  The DNR says the projects must be entirely within the Lake Michigan Coastal area, the northern portions of Lake, Porter, and La Porte counties. The meeting is for June 18th, 6:30 pm CDT at Woodland Park on Willowcreek Road in Portage.
The Lake Michigan Coastal Grants Program is an annual competitive grants program that awards funds to units of local government, regional and state agencies, colleges and universities, and non-profit organizations.
Since 2001, the Coastal Grants Program has awarded more than $12 million in funding.
The LMCP was created to provide technical and financial assistance and to coordinate efforts between local, state and federal governments, as well as local organizations, and to support projects that protect and restore natural, cultural and historical resources in Indiana's Lake Michigan Coastal region.
The LMCP is funded through the Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Office of Coastal Resource Management.
