Original partners

The project was spearheaded by Don Carpenter during his time at Lawrence Technological University. Funding came primarily from Michigan Sea Grant and multiple state agencies. An additional grant from the State of Michigan helped expand the project beyond its initial two-year (2014-2016) run.

This co-funding model has effectively leveraged public dollars to benefit Michigan communities in an unprecedented level of partnership among Michigan Sea Grant and its state and university partners.
