Application materials at glc.org/projects/water-quality/glad/
The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) requests project proposals under its Great Lakes Air Deposition (GLAD) program. The purpose of the GLAD program is to safeguard the environment and human health from the adverse effects of atmospherically deposited toxic contaminants in the Great Lakes region. This program supports scientific investigation and the development of assessment tools to identifying the magnitude, sources and impacts of toxic contaminant deposition within the region and to facilitate concerted and strategic actions to mitigate such impacts.
Proposals should focus on contaminants of concern for atmospheric deposition in the Great Lakes region and should demonstrate a likelihood that the contaminant(s) being examined are depositing to the region’s waterways from the atmosphere in a quantity that may cause adverse impacts to humans or wildlife. Proposals must describe tangible benefits delivered to the Great Lakes states and how projects will assist the state agencies and their partners in taking informed actions toward assessing and reducing the occurrence and impact of atmospheric deposition of toxic substances.
The 2008 RFP identifies priority project areas that are specifically targeted to be addressed in the upcoming year:
While these areas are being targeted, it is not expected that funding will allow projects to be pursued in all these areas, nor do pre-proposals need to be limited to these identified priorities, procided they are within the larger scope of the GLAD program described in the RFP.
