The Water Research Foundation partners directly with our utility subscribers through the Tailored Collaboration Program. Under this program, a utility subscriber or group of subscribers can obtain matching funds for a research idea that they have developed. These ideas may be more specialized or regional in nature than those funded through WRF’s other research programs. The Tailored Collaboration Program also allows participating utilities to take advantage of our independent review process and professional project management expertise.

Tailored Collaboration Program Update

The Tailored Collaboration Program Pre-Proposal Guidelines are now available. The full Tailored Collaboration Program Guidelines are coming soon and are invite only.

A list of definitions can be found in the Addendum to the Tailored Collaboration Program Pre-Proposal Guidelines.


If you have any questions about these changes or about the program in general feel free to contact John Albert at or 303.734.3413.
