Realizing that aquatic habitat protection efforts may not coincide with the application timeline or grant period for the Grants Program and that many grassroots projects can be completed for under $500, the Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Network and Fund maintains a reserve to support urgent projects or those that present a special opportunity. Although the eligibility, overarching goal, types of activities funded, priority program areas, and evaluation criteria are the same as the Grants Program, Special Opportunity Grant (SOG) requests are processed differently to ensure quick turnaround. United States applicants that do not have 501(c)(3) tax status or Ontario applicants that are not registered charities governed by the Charities Accounting Act must have a sponsoring 501(c)(3) organization or registered charity. Grants will be disbursed on a first come, first served basis. For more information about the types of activities funded and application materials, visit the web site.
