(LANSING, Mich.) -- The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality announced on Thursday a program to help Michigan institutions develop sustainable laboratory practices.
The department says that funding through the Michigan Green Labs Initiative will be available to help institutions minimize the environmental impact of their lab organizations. The project is funded federally by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is supported by a number of universities across Michigan.
Eligible organizations include universities, local governments and tribal governments. Grants up to $10,000 will be offered following a proposal with clear detail as to how the money will be spent and at least 50 percent of funding coming from the applicant.
