The Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments (GLISA) is proud to announce our 2019 small grants competition! In 2019, GLISA will award several 1-year demonstration grants of up to $20,000 each to organizations that will work with GLISA to address the risks of climate variability and change in the Great Lakes region. We seek boundary organizations to collaborate with decision makers from a diverse range of sectors and communities to implement climate adaptation projects in the Great Lakes region using current GLISA climate information services.  
All interested applicants must submit a letter of intent by Friday, April 12th at 5pm Eastern. GLISA will evaluate all letters and invite selected teams to submit a full proposal. Visit GLISA's website for competition details and instructions to submit a letter of intent.
Full proposal guidelines will follow in late April or early May, allowing 4 weeks for development of the full proposal. Final funding decisions are expected in late June and awards are anticipated to begin August 1, 2019. Please direct all questions to GLISA Program Manager Jenna Jorns (
