Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Canada nonprofit governmental, tribal, educational organizations and institutions for research projects on fishery resources in eligible regions. The purpose of the program is to boost the sustainable value of the fishery to stakeholders, increase self-sustaining fish populations, and create a more resilient and stable fish community. Eligible projects are those that have benefits directed primarily to the Great Lakes.

The mission of the GLFT is to provide funding to enhance, protect, and rehabilitate Great Lakes fishery resources to compensate for lost use and enjoyment caused by the operation of the Ludington Pumped Storage Plant. 

The key intended outcomes for fisheries research investments are to:

  • Enhance the ability of managers and their agencies to understand, anticipate, adapt, and respond to changes in the fishery and ecosystem
  • Build research capacity and management expertise needed to understand and manage the Great Lakes ecosystem for sustainable production of valuable species 

Funded activities include hypothesis-driven research, as well as tools, resources, and capacity-building efforts that support the development or use and application of research.

In 2020, the trust is reserving at least $500,000 of its 2020 fisheries research budget for lake whitefish research and intends to prioritize lake whitefish research through at least 2024. The GLFT will implement its priority through a combination of competitive and funder-directed grant processes.

In 2021, the GLFT will grant as much as $800,000 to research efforts responding to one or more of the following themes. Applicants are encouraged to focus on one or more of the six areas: 

  • Fish Recruitment
  • Ecosystem Disruption
  • Habitat Research and Evaluation
  • Aquatic Invasive Species
  • Native Species Rehabilitation (Lake Sturgeon Emphasis)
    • Native Species Rehabilitation
    • Lake Sturgeon Rehabilitation
  • Emerging Issues
