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. The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) is improving habitat for fish, wildlife, and people in communities across the eight-state Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes Restoration Database (GLRD) was developed to promote this good work, improve communication and showcase for elected officials and citizens how their tax dollars are being put to work under the GLRI. The GLRD showcases projects implemented under the Habitat and Wildlife Protection and Restoration Focus Area in Fiscal Years 2010-2014. The database was created to increase awareness and improve communication on accomplishments in this important component of the GLRI. This map provides an interactive framework to explore project details, specific outcomes and contact information for habitat restoration projects funded through Focus Area 4 of the GLRI in the Great Lakes Basin. The GLRD was funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and created by the Great Lakes Commission with assistance from a network of federal, state and local agency partners. Currently, the database includes only projects funded under the GLRI focus area for habitat and wildlife. Other focus areas may also support habitat-related projects (such as removal of aquatic invasive species or restoration of degraded habitat in Areas of Concern), but are not reflected in the database at this time.
