In the original form of the Constitution, the maximum grant to each state could be as much as $100,000, but this was dropped because most states didn’t have enough federal money to pay for them.
The new grant is $125,000 for “all areas of human activity,” including the seas, oceans, air, and land.
How did it get the name “Great Lakes Revitalization”? The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s great-granddaughter, Dr. Janet Shibley Hyde Pratt, called it the “New Great Lakes Initiative.”

What is the difference with restoration for recovery? Restoration refers to the process of bringing back an organism from a state of good health; recovery involves correcting problems that existed previously and restoring the organism to its health. For example, restoring the Chesapeake Bay watershed to its long-term health; restoration of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park from its poor health before World War II to its current, healthy condition; and restoration of the Southeastern Pennsylvania waterway from its diminished condition before the Civil War to its current, healthy condition. All of this comes at a much smaller, but significant, price — $6,000 per square mile (2.1 acres) of river bottom water to be restored, per million people.
For every dollar spent restoring water quality, taxpayers are saving more than $10 in reduced sewer and industrial pollution costs, and an extra $25 in health benefits and other economic benefits.
Why is it so important to clean the Great Lakes? They can be an enormous wealth generator for the Great Lakes region. In 2005, $14 billion was invested in the Great Lakes by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. By 2018, the Great Lakes are expected to generate $35 billion in economic activity (such as tourism, fishing, fishing industries, etc.).
On average, a dollar invested in cleaning water means a dollar spent to prevent diseases such as e.coli, salmonella, hepatitis A, and other types of bacterial illnesses.
