LCBP Seeks Proposals to Conduct Public Knowledge Survey
The Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) seeks proposals to conduct a survey of the public’s knowledge of water quality issues in the Lake Champlain Basin. Up to $120,000 is available to support a project to begin in summer 2020 and conclude by summer 2022.
The survey will assess the public’s knowledge about issues related to water quality and ecosystem health in the lake, the types of media and programs from which they get information about the lake, and the level of participation in volunteer and stewardship activities among members of the public.
The project will further the goals of the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s long-term management plan Opportunities for Action by helping the LCBP and its management partners target their education and outreach program and make them more effective.
Dr. Eric Howe, LCBP Director, said, “Determining the outcomes of education and outreach efforts is often more challenging than evaluating projects that are focused on specific actions to improve water quality. This survey will help to identify long-term changes in knowledge and action by the public.”
Support is provided with funds awarded to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission on behalf of the Lake Champlain Basin Program by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
Electronic versions of proposals must be received by email@example.com no later than March 30, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified in April 2020 for project initiation by May 2020.
Details about the Request for Proposals are available online at lcbp.org/grants or by calling the Lake Champlain Basin Program office at (802) 372-3213.
