Tell Congress: Fund Programs to Protect Our Lakes

The White House’s recent budget proposal included big cuts to critical Great Lakes funding programs. But, ultimately, Congress controls the purse strings.

Tell Congress to protect our lakes by funding:

  • The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which funds on-the-ground projects around the lakes to clean up pollution, prevent harmful algal blooms, restore habitat, and stop invasive species
  • S. Army Corps of Engineers efforts to stop Asian carp
  • Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds to help local governments fix failing infrastructure and ensure access to safe, affordable drinking water
