Grant Funding Jump Started CleanUP
Support For Our Efforts.
In 2020, the EPA’s Great Lakes Restoration program led to the creation of the Great Lakes CleanUP. Nearly $300,000 in funding began the process - led by Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper – of engaging agencies across the Great Lakes basin to help remove and track litter. Four years later, over 20 partner organizations continue the work around Earth Day to make sure we protect and restore our Great Lakes for everyone.
