Project Description
Foundational Program

The AFRI Foundational Program supports grants in the six AFRI priority areas to continue building a foundation of knowledge critical for solving current and future societal challenges. The six priority areas are:

Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM)

The Office of Land and Emergency Management provides policy, guidance and direction for the Agency's emergency response and waste programs

Opportunities for funding may be found under the following programs within The Catalog of Federal Assistance (CFDA) 

Environmental Engineering

The goal of the Environmental Engineering program is to support transformative research which applies scientific and engineering principles to avoid or minimize solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges, resulting from human activities on land, inland and coastal waters, and air, while promoting resource and energy conservation and recovery.

Food Waste Reduction

This guide from the USDA Rural Development agency highlights the various ways the agency provides funding and support for food loss and waste reduction, reuse and composting.

Glove Recycling

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign participates in Kimberly-Clark’s RightCycle Program. Campus facilities can keep disposable gloves out of the landfill to be recycled into useful plastic products.

Participation Makes a Difference

Enviropures

EnviroPure is a food waste elimination system that is a self-contained unit that can be continually fed food waste and dispose the waste. The system is designed to solve the environmental, operations, and economic issues associated with the disposal of food waste. The unit keeps optimal temperatures and oxygen levels for aerobic decomposition to take place more quickly. This results in a complete elimination of food waste without odors, sludge build-up, and system clean out requirements.
