Welcome to the Lake Michigan Funding Resiliency Dashboard

Developed in partnership between WaterNow Alliance, American Rivers, and One Water Econ, this dashboard is an actionable funding and financing resource designed to help coastal Lake Michigan communities implement local resiliency plans and initiatives.

The dashboard follows a stepwise process to guide municipalities and their partners through the process of identifying priority projects and matching those projects with available funding and financing options. Dashboard users can navigate through each step or skip ahead to find the information most relevant to their community’s needs.
