The Research Priority Program enables The Water Research Foundation to address broadly relevant subscriber issues, challenges, and opportunities with a targeted, sustained research effort. Sixty percent of our annual research budget is allocated to this program. Our Board of Directors obligates program funds each January and individual projects are then approved and funded by our Board-appointed Research Area Council (RAC).
Projects funded before the integration between Water Research Foundation and Water Environment & Research Foundation were done so as part of the Focus Area Program. Projects funded post integration, were done so as part of the Research Proirity Program.
