The Service reports project accomplishments quarterly in the Great Lakes Accountability System (GLAS), an online database managed by U.S. EPA for all projects implemented under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI).
The GLAS is currently closed to the public while upgrades are being made to the system. Please visit http://www.glri.us/granteeinfo.html for information on the status of GLAS.
To maximize transparency during this period, agencies are working to post 2010-2012 project information on the http://glri.us website (expected Spring 2013).
Information on Service GLRI activities as of January 2013 is also available below.
Signs of Progress
All U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service field sites that are receiving Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding will be marked by a sign similar to the one pictured below. Marking our field sites is part of our interagency agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This funding requirement is designed to increase transparency with regard to the use of GLRI funding and increase public awareness.
