Grants

About the Grants Program
The FWRI Grants Office is responsible for managing over 200+ active revenue awards received through various funding opportunities.  Staff members review, submit and monitor all revenue award documents throughout the grant cycle for all science programs within the Institute.  Most of the funds received are through federal agencies such as NOAA, EPA, and USFWS.  However, the Institute also receives non-federal funds through Universities, local and state governments, and Water Management Districts.  Over the past several years the FWRI grants office has expanded from 2 staff members to 5 staff members to help accommodate the workload from the funds being received in relation to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Incident in 2010.

 

Current Grant Awards
All grants listed are as of December 1, 2017. New awards and amendments to existing awards are received throughout the year.
