The Detroit River Canadian Cleanup (DRCC) is a community-based partnership initiated in 1998 to cleanup, enhance, restore and sustain the Detroit River ecosystem. Partnerships within the DRCC aim to promote and implement the Remedial Action Plan to restore the Detroit River's beneficial uses with the ultimate goal of removing the Detroit River from the list of Great Lakes Areas of Concern.
The federal, provincial and municipal government, local industries, scientific researchers, local environmental organizations and many dedicated citizens are key partners and play an important role in the cleanup process.
The DRCC's member organizations provide leadership in identifying partnerships and funding opportunities to support and implement cleanup goals. Watch the summary video below!
The Great Lakes Sustainability Fund (GLSF), administered by Environment Canada, supports projects that will advance the delisting of Canadian Great Lakes’ Areas of Concern. The deadline for proposal submission is January 9, 2015. Priority for GLSF funding will be given to projects that directly support actions in the Remedial Action Plan. If your organization intends on applying for a GLSF grant for work in the Detroit River AOC, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org!
