WE&RF funds water quality research on behalf of its subscribers, and facilitates collaboration among organizations seeking funding partners for high-priority issues. WE&RF 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, WE&RF 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.
