$25,000 per grant for technical projects),Organizational Support Grants (up to $3,000 per grant for organization building), andEducation and Outreach Grants (up to $7,500 per grant for educational

plan Opportunities for Action: An Evolving Plan for the Future of the Lake Champlain Basin. Grant funds are anticipated through agreements with the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and Environmental
Protection Agency with appropriations supported by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy.
Grant Guidelines are available in the grants section of the LCBP website atwww.lcbp.org/grants.htm with more information about how the grant program works and to help you prepare a competitive
application. Application Forms are provided in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats, for your convenience. Please review all of the materials provided within the Grant Guidelines carefully before
beginning your application. Organizations with existing LCBP-funded projects are eligible to apply for new funding only if all project deliverables and obligations under the existing and past awards are fully
up-to-date and the projects are in good standing.
You are encouraged to contact us at the LCBP office for assistance as you begin to develop your project. Because they do not make award decisions, our staff can help you interpret the application instructions
Please note that completed applications must be received at the LCBP office in Grand Isle by close of business on the date noted above. We hope to have award decisions by early December 2011.
I look forward to seeing the 2010 applications!
