Correction: Habitat Protection story
Question of the Day
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - In a story Jan. 27 about the Michigan Department of Natural Resources offering aquatic habitat grants, The Associated Press reported erroneously that each project could get up to $25,000. Each project chosen would get at least $25,000.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Mich. DNR to award $1M in aquatic habitat grants
Michigan DNR to award $1M in grants for projects to protect, restore aquatic wildlife habitat
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources plans to distribute $1 million to protect and restore habitat for fish and other aquatic wildlife.
The department said Monday that grants will be awarded to government agencies, Native American tribes, nonprofit groups and individuals on a competitive basis. Each project chosen would get at least $25,000.
Fisheries Division program manager Gary Whelan says the initiative is designed to boost wildlife populations and public involvement in watershed protection efforts.
Projects can focus on rivers, inland lakes or the Great Lakes. They can protect habitat that is still intact or rehabilitate habitat that’s degraded.
Applications will be accepted from Feb. 1 through March 15. Grants will be funded with revenue from an increase in hunting and fishing license fees.
