Community grants support PFAS advocacy across the Great Lakes
A Great Lakes coalition is giving out $35,000 in grants to communities impacted by contamination from the toxic "forever chemicals" known as PFAS.
The Great Lakes PFAS Action Network (GLPAN) is now aiming to fund 10 projects that help local citizen groups address contamination.
GLPAN said the grants are meant to support PFAS research and testing, public education efforts and community organizing.
Previous initiatives include testing the gardens in the southeast Michigan community of Holly and hosting educational events on PFAS in Southwest Detroit.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 12.
