If you ask us, the Chicago area is second to none. That's why we're happy to be able to work with partners on some of the most important issues facing the region. For example, in 2011, an IISG study into the costs of green infrastructure led the state of Illinois to invest millions of dollars in new projects in what was already one of the greenest cities in the world.
Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant brings together scientists, educators, policy makers, community decision makers, outreach specialists, business leaders, and the general public to work towards a healthy environment and economy. IISG is funded through NOAA, the University of Illinois and Purdue University.
