Great Lakes Restoration Initiative renewal welcomed by lakeshore communities

Door County officials are welcoming Congressional approval extending the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative for another five-years.  The program helps lakefront communities and state governments to improve water quality, develop invasive species action plans and respond to erosion caused by rising water levels.  The GLRI will see a substantial funding increase from $300-million in 2021 to $375-million in 2022 with annual increases of $25-million, topping off at $475 in 2026.  Door County Administrator Ken Pabich believes continuing the program benefits Great Lakes communities and the entire nation.
 



Without reauthorization, the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative would have expired at the end of 2021.  The reauthorization bill now goes to President Trump for his signature.
