MILWAUKEE (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking proposals for projects that help restore and protect the Great Lakes.

The EPA plans to award a total of $27.5 million for up to 30 projects, which must involve work in the Great Lakes basin.

Those eligible to apply include states, municipalities, tribes, universities and nonprofit organizations. The EPA is specifically looking for projects that involve controlling invasive species, managing watersheds and reducing sediment.

The agency will hold a webinar Tuesday morning to explain the process for applying for grants.

Applications are due Aug. 25.
