The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is soliciting project proposals under the Great Lakes Air Deposition (GLAD) program. GLAD is a program set up to address the deposition of toxic pollutants, as well as understand how these pollutants adversely affect both human and ecosystem health within the Great Lakes basin.
In the past, GLAD, under the efforts of the Great Lake Commissions (GLC) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), has supported more than 35 projects that identify, quantify, and reduce the sources, environmental transport process, deposition rates and impacts of toxic pollutants in the Great Lakes region. The GLAD program places a large emphasis on promoting scientific efforts that will increase the ability to manage this complicated but urgent environmental issue.
The available funding for the current year of the GLAD program is approximately $90,000. Successful applicants will be invited to enter into a grant agreement with IDEM to perform the work described within their proposal. Choices will be based on the selection criteria identified in Attachment A of the solicitation. IDEM anticipates funding one to two projects, depending on the scope of work and cost per proposal. The deadline for proposals is August 10, 2016.
