BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy and the head of the Lake Champlain Basin Program have announced the availability of $1.1 million in Lake Champlain grants.

Leahy appeared Friday with Bill Howland, the program’s executive director, on the Burlington waterfront.

The grants are available in three categories: pollution prevention, cultural heritage and education and outreach.

They will be distributed by the Lake Champlain Basin Program to up to 100 small watershed groups, schools, towns and others.

The funding comes from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and the National Park Service.
