The GLRI is the largest federal investment in Great Lakes restoration and conservation in two decades. Begun in 2010, the Initiative awarded over $292 million in its first five years for habitat and wildlife restoration and protection across the eight Great Lakes states. Hundreds of organizations are implementing projects to advance the restoration goals of the GLRI and to rehabilitate and conserve fish and wildlife resources that are important ecological and economic assets for local communities.
