Milwaukee Receives USD 1 M Great Lakes Restoration Grant (USA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the award of a $1 million Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant to the city of Milwaukee to fund green infrastructure projects to improve water quality in Lake Michigan.

EPA Region 5 Administrator/Great Lakes National Program Manager Susan Hedman was joined at the Global Water Center by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to announce the grant.

These green infrastructure projects will also help protect against flooding during more frequent and intense storms which may occur as a result of climate change,” said Hedman.

Milwaukee is one of 16 cities to receive funding in the initial round of EPA’s new Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Shoreline Cities grant program.
