Great Lakes Wind Power funding opportunity

We just heard of this new opportunity -- Great Lakes Wind Power - Making It Wildlife-Friendly -- and know it might be of interest, especially to some of our friends up in Northwest Indiana who have faced this very issue.  This program provides grants and other assistance to groups and government agencies engaged in monitoring migratory birds and bats in support of developing wildlife-friendly wind power in the Great Lakes region.

Applications are due May 6th.  Awards are expected to be between $5,000 and $50,000.  County, city, or township governments, public institutions of higher education, and 501(c)(3) non-profits are among eligible applicants.

This obviously isn't your typical energy funding opportunity, but it is something to consider in northern Indiana.  Visit under funding opportunity FWS-ES-GLRI-10WW for more information.
