Lake Michigan Watershed Ecosystem Partnership for Illinois
C2000 Ecosystem Partnership Grants
The C2000 Ecosystems Program brings together the interests and participation of local communities along watersheds -- landowners, businesses, scientists, environmental organizations, recreational enthusiast and policy makers -- in partnerships to enhance and protect watersheds through ecosystem-based management. All designated partnership groups are eligible to apply for grants under this program.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to pre-submit project applications to the Local Partnership Council (LPC) for review and comments before completing their formal submissions to IDNR, though this step is not required. All applications will be accepted and evaluated, but in making its funding recommendations the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) will take into account scores and comments posted by the LPC for all projects falling within the boundaries of their Ecosystem Partnership.
Visit the IDNR website to learn more about the C2000 Program, or contact Angela Larsen, LMWEP coordinator, at email@example.com.
