Request for 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.

Click to download the Request for Proposals. Complete proposals must be postmarked or submitted via e-mail no later than May 28, 2018. Contact Christina Pastoria with questions.

The Michigan Areas of Concern Program is a partnership of federal, state, and local actors that restores sites in the Great Lakes region with environmental damage. Two sites in Michigan have been restored. Twelve are in various stages of restoration. Activities include habitat restoration, removal of contaminated material, and green infrastructure installation.  

The Office of the Great Lakes works in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
