Michigan Office of the Great Lakes request proposals to evaluate Great Lakes Restoration impacts
The OGL is announcing a Request for Proposals for a research project to value the economic impact of restoration work conducted by its Areas of Concern Program. The selected project team will develop a modeling tool to support the program. The information produced by the tool will help inform decisions and provide data to demonstrate the economic value of Great Lakes restoration activities. The grant program will occur in two phases. The first phase will provide up to $100,000 to develop conceptual diagrams, assess available ecosystem modeling tools, and analyze existing economic research. The second phase allows for up to $200,000 to develop the tool.
