LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Great Lakes Areas of Concern is receiving $7.9 million from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to fund habitat restoration projects.
U.S. Sens. Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow announced the grant Wednesday. Both Michigan lawmakers are members of the Great Lakes Task Force.
Sen. Peters says the money will help ensure the Great Lakes provide safe drinking water to the 33 million Americans who consume it.
Sen. Stabenow says the grant also will protect the Great Lakes, waterways and wildlife habitats.
A regional partnership will be led by Great Lakes Commission, in coordination with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Great Lakes states and local agencies.
