Great Lakes Protection and Restoration

In 2002, the Council launched the Governors' Priorities Task Force to help protect and restore the Great Lakes. More »

Great Lakes Water Management

The Great Lakes Protection Fund

In 1989, the Governors formed the Great Lakes Protection Fund.  As the nation's first multi-State, not-for-profit, environmental endowment, the Fund issues grants to support regional collaborative efforts focusing on enhancing the health of the Great Lakes ecosystem.  The member States also receive Fund monies through State shares based on their original contribution to the Fund.

Great Lakes Biomass State Regional Partnership

The Council administered the Great Lakes Biomass State Regional Partnership (GLBSRP) under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) from 1983-2009.  This was one of five regional programs established by DOE to encourage greater production and use of biomass for energy generation.

Great Lakes Recycle

Material management is a fundamental component of a high performance economy. Therefore, the Council Governors promoted the use of recycled materials throughout the Great Lakes region. More »

Great Lakes Water Quality Initiative

In 1994, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued the first basin-wide water quality guidelines for the Great Lakes region.  The Council assisted the Great Lakes States in coordinating new State water quality regulations consistent with these guidelines. More »

Spill Protection Initiative

The Spill Protection Initiative was established in 1992 as a partnership between the Great Lakes States and five major oil companies (Amoco, BP America, Marathon, Mobil, and Sun Oil) to better prevent and respond to oil spills. More »

Workforce Quality Initiative

The Great Lakes Governors want to ensure that emerging, existing, and transitional workers in their States have the skills necessary to compete and thrive in today’s economic marketplace, while maintaining the region’s competitive edge.  In 1997, as part of the Workforce Quality Initiative, they announced the creation of the Great Lakes Guarantee--a portable, regional endorsement of State or national industry skill standards.

The Pioneering Partners Foundation

The Pioneering Partners Foundation, created in 1992, brings teachers together who have successfully employed technology in the classroom and provides them with grant funding, specialized training, and on-going support to spread their technology-based innovations to their peers and the region’s students.

The Great Printers Project

For industries like printing, comprising primarily small businesses, an environmental program focused on permits and inspections alone cannot efficiently communicate environmental goals and ways to achieve them. More »
