The Harmful Algal Bloom Research Initiative; a 2015 research report conducted by University of Toledo, Defiance College, Bowling Green State University, Heidelberg University, University of Akron, Kent State University, The Ohio State University and University of Cincinnati in conjunction with the Ohio Sea Grant and the Lake Erie Commission; was recently released to the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

The initiative states that after the Toledo water crisis in August of 2014, the Ohio Department of Higher Education allocated $2 million to Ohio universities for research to solve the harmful algal bloom problem in Lake Erie. The funding was then matched by participating universities for a total of more than $4 million.
