New federal funding has been approved in an effort to make the coasts of the Great Lakes more resilient to changes in climate.

The region will receive about $2.8 million for coastal conservation, wetlands restoration, and more. Michigan will receive roughly a third of that money, around $875,000 over the next five years to address coastal issues. It’s not a lot of money in the bigger picture, but this round of grants is just the beginning, according to Bridge Michigan, who report that competitive grants in greater amounts will be released in the future.
