|Water Research Grants||
EPA funds water research grants to develop and support the science and tools necessary to develop sustainable solutions to 21st century water resource problems, ensuring water quality and availability in order to protect human and ecosystem health.
|Ecosystem Research Grants||
EPA funds ecosystems research grants to protect ecosystems and the air and water resources that provide numerous benefits for humans and other living things.
|U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC)||
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center helps solve the nation’s most challenging problems in civil and military engineering, geospatial sciences, water resources, and environmental sciences for the Army, Department of Defense, civilian agencies, and the Nation’s public good.
SERDP is DoD's environmental science and technology program. Solicitations seeks proposals for basic and applied research, and advanced technology development, or to investigate innovative approaches that entail high technical risk or require supporting data to provide proof of concept. Submissions must be in response to the Statement of Need which covers the following topics in FY 2018: Environmental restoration, Resource conservation and resiliency
|Urban Water Small Grants||
EPA’s Urban Waters Program helps local residents and their organizations restore their urban waters in ways that also benefit community and economic revitalization.
|Training and Technical Assistance for Small Water Systems||
The funding will help provide water and wastewater system staff and private well owners with training and tools to enhance system operations and management practices, and support EPA’s continuing efforts to protect public health and promote sustainability in small communities.
|Pollution Prevention (P2)||
This program funds grants/cooperative agreements that implement pollution prevention technical assistance services and/or training for businesses and support projects that utilize pollution prevention techniques to reduce and/or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land.
|Extreme Events: Preparedness, Planning, and Adaptation Within the Water Sector||
Focused on developing strategies for increasing community resilience in U.S. towns, municipalities or small cities planning for the impacts of extreme precipitation events (too much or too little water) on their civilian population.
|National Competitive Grants Program||
This competitive grant program focus on: “water problems and issues of a regional or interstate nature beyond those of concern only to a single State and which relate to specific program priorities identified jointly by the Secretary (of the Interior) and the (water resources research) institutes.”
|Illinois Water Resources Center - Annual Small Grants||
Annual Small Grants are competitively awarded to Illinois graduate students and their project advisors. Approximately $40,000 is available each year for research focused on agricultural land use, wetland restoration, water quality, stormwater management, emerging contaminants, and other key water resource issues.
WaterSMART Water and Energy Efficiency Grants provide cost-shared funding for projects that save water; increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in water management; support environmental benefits (i.e., make conserved water available instream or otherwise address endangered species issues); mitigate conflict risk in areas at a high risk of future water conflict; and accomplish other benefits that contribute to water supply sustainability in the western United States
|Boneyard Creek Management||
The Boneyard Creek is a wonderful water resource for education, research, and stormwater management for campus.
|Prediction and Resilience Against Extreme Events (PREEVENTS)||
This program seeks projects that will
|Sustainable Agricultural Practices||
A goal for the University of Illinois’ campus, as set forth by the 2010 Illinois Climate Action Plan, is to reduce directly related agricultural emissions by 50 percent by 2020. In order to complete this goal, the campus must shift to more sustainable agricultural and animal production practices. Areas that need improvement include reductions in food waste and the energy required for food processing, preparation, and transportation.
