Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, agencies, IHEs, and hospitals for water quality research. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. Funding is intended for research projects that are large-scale, that address valuation for underrepresented water body types and regions, improvements to water quality indices, and environmental justice valuation.
The goal of this request for applications is to advance knowledge of how changes in water quality can be valued at appropriate spatial scales using advanced valuation methods. The research should help public and private decision makers and stakeholders at the state and local levels, by quantifying the behavioral and socioeconomic consequences of water quality regulations and related policy options across a full range of ecological and economic endpoints.
There are three distinct areas of research covered by this solicitation. EPA encourages applicants to focus on only one research area so that applications have the detail necessary to fully address one research area.
For further details on each research area, see https://www.epa.gov/system/files/documents/2021-11/sswr-water-quality-benefits-rfa-nov-final.pdf#page=12.
