Research Funding

The federal government provides substantial funding for research grants to a number of agencies, including the National Science Foundation, the Department of Agriculture, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The use of such funding is largely discretionary, depending on the focus of the particular agency. A Congressional push to increase research efforts that pertain directly to managing agricultural water impacts could be effective in focusing agency funding toward the areas outlined in this technology assessment.
