Water Resources Competitive Grants Program request for proposals

The Institute for Water Resources (IWR), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in cooperation with the National Institutes for Water Resources (NIWR) has requested proposals for grants to support applied investigations for specific areas related to water resources issues in the United States.

Grant proposals may request up to $200,000 in federal funds, but proposals for lesser amounts are encouraged. Proposals must be submitted to the IWR by a NIWR-designated institute or center, which for Texas researchers, is the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI). The government's obligation under this program is contingent upon the availability of funds.

All proposals must be submitted by 1 p.m., CST on Thursday, August 15 to TWRI to allow time for compilation and submission to IWR. The request for proposals (RFP) is available online.

Questions or comments concerning the review process or the RFP may be addressed to Dr. Joe Manous, IWR U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 703.428.7074 or For more information from TWRI regarding submission, please contact Danielle Kalisek at 979.845.2781 or
