Under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), U.S. EPA issues grants to state and local partners to implement watershed management and domestic action plans to reduce nutrient loading from agricultural lands.

A major priority of the GLRI is to reduce harmful algae in the nearshore areas of Green Bay, Saginaw Bay and Western Lake Erie basin. Projects will target best management practices to critical source areas to achieve phosphorus reduction goals.
