Posted on Monday, October 11th, 2021 | Posted in News

LakeChamplain_sunsetThe Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP), a NEIWPCC program partner, has announced a request for technical pre-proposals for services to further the goals and objectives of the Lake Champlain management plan, “Opportunities for Action.” The total request for each project may range from $25,000 to $300,000 with an anticipated start date of early 2023.

Applicants may propose projects that address any strategies and tasks outlined in “Opportunities for Action.” LCBP is particularly interested in funding projects that:

  • Address improving soil health on agricultural land across the basin.
  • Develop a plan to improve our understanding of emerging contaminants in the Lake Champlain Basin.
  • Develop plans and strategies for early detection and prevention of aquatic invasive species introduction to the basin.
  • Support conservation or restoration of vulnerable native species and their habitats.
  • Use post-implementation monitoring to quantify ecosystem benefits of water quality or habitat improvement projects.

Pre-proposals must be submitted to the LCBP by noon on November 8, 2021.

Full details about the request for technical pre-proposals, including the online application form, eligibility, timeframe, and other project requirements, can be found at www.lcbp.org/grants.
