  1. Public–Private Partnership • ArcelorMittal • US Environmental Protection Agency • US Fish & Wildlife Service • USDA Forest Service • National Fish & Wildlife Foundation • National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration

  2. Funding Areas • Awards grants for: • Habitat restoration, protection and enhancement • Fish passage restoration • Invasive species control • Water quality improvements • Supports implementation of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative

  3. Grant Awards: 2006–2010 103 grants: $12.1 million Grantee match: $14.9 million Total conservation investment: $27.0 million

  4. Accomplishments • Restoration/enhancement of >8,000 acres of wetland, shoreline and upland habitat • Restoration/enhancement of 50 miles of stream and riparian habitat • Restoration of fish passage to >425 stream miles • Development of 18 restoration/management/conservation plans • Training and education of >6,500 students, teachers, volunteers and residents

  5. Upcoming Funding Cycle • Request for Proposals to be announced in January 2011 • Applications due mid February 2011 • More information to be posted at www.sustainourgreatlakes.org

  6. Stewardship Grants Program • Large-scale habitat restoration, enhancement and protection projects • Grant award size: $150,000 to $1.5 million • Project duration: typically 24 months

  7. Community Grants Program • Habitat restoration and enhancement while building local stewardship capacity • Grant award size: $25,000 to $150,000 • Project duration: typically 18 months

  8. Context • Relate project to existing conservation strategies/plans/initiatives • If project is one element of a broader effort, relate the project to the broader effort • Summarize results of previous work

  9. Outputs and Outcomes • Outputs are activities that will be implemented (what you will do) • Outcomes are the ecological benefits of the project (what you will achieve) • Outcomes should follow from outputs Output Outcome Remove 2 fish barriers Restore fish passage to 93 stream miles Conduct prescribed burn on 60 acres Increase native plant diversity by 25% Protect and conserve 40 acres of coastal wetland Acquire 40-acre parcel

  10. Outputs and Outcomes • Habitat and Wildlife Protection and Restoration measures of progress in the GLRI Action Plan: • Miles of river reopened for fish passage • Number of fish passage barriers removed • Acres of wetlands and wetland–associated uplands protected, restored, and enhanced • Acres of coastal, upland, and island habitats protected, restored, and enhanced • Number of habitat-related BUIs removed from Areas of Concern so impaired

  11. Technical Expertise/Merit • Quality of project design • Education, expertise, staff and resources • Ability to implement within specified time frame • Schedule for obtaining needed permits/approvals

  12. Project Costs • Adequacy of budget to complete proposed actions • Cost-effectiveness • Extent project meets/exceeds minimum match requirement

  13. Monitoring and Evaluation • Propose monitoring of scope and intensity appropriate to assess project results • Incorporate pre- and post- implementation monitoring data when possible and appropriate • Any proposed monitoring must be linked to habitat work or invasive species control that will occur as part of the project

  14. Partnerships • Breadth of community and government partners • Significance of partner contributions in the form of funding time and other resources • Letters documenting the support/contributions of project partners

  15. Key Take-home Messages • Link project to existing strategies/initiatives; clarify its scope in relation to broader efforts • Define outputs and outcomes in terms of quantifiable metrics; ensure outcomes follow logically from outputs • Link outputs and outcomes to GLRI Action Plan measures of progress • Include provisions to monitor and evaluate results • Emphasize the diversity and contributions of partners
