The Great Lakes Clean Marina Network evolved from the Green Marina Education and Outreach project, a strategic collaboration between Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs to support education and outreach efforts across the Great Lakes states. The project was supported by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Project partners and collaborators include universities, state agencies and marina industries, such as the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Michigan Boating Industry Association; the Indiana and Wisconsin Coastal Management programs; the Wisconsin Marine Association and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources; the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association; the Midwest Marina Association; and the National Association of Marina Industries. Additional collaborators include the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Lake Michigan Lakewide Management Plan Forum, Coastal Zone Management Programs, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard, Power Squadrons, and non-government organizations.
