WRF funds water quality research on behalf of its subscribers, and facilitates collaboration among organizations seeking funding partners for high-priority issues. WRF awards funding through a competitive process, and coordinates funding under contract through a staff-assigned program manager. All qualified entities — including international organizations and disadvantaged business enterprises — are encouraged to submit research proposals.

Additional Funding Opportunities

From time to time, WRF partners with other organizations to support key funding opportunities. This helps to promote sound science that moves the water industry forward, while eliminating duplication of research efforts.
