The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is a proud partner in the implementation of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
FY 2013 Distribution of USFWS's GLRI Funds by Focus Area
58% Habitat, 35% Invasive Species, 7% Toxic Substances
The Service reports project accomplishments quarterly in the Great Lakes Accountability System, also known as GLAS, an online database managed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for all projects implemented under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
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.
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.
