Grants to USA nonprofits, IHEs, hospitals, agencies, and tribes for research to improve and develop technologies to prevent excess nutrients from entering waterways where they cause environmental damage. Funding is intended for research that will curb and reverse the growing concern of harmful algal blooms, which have both environmental and economic impacts.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, aims to promote scientific progress towards preventing and controlling harmful algal blooms (HABs) by seeking applications proposing research to: (1) determine the effectiveness of existing nutrient treatment technologies; (2) evaluate the scale-up of emerging nutrient treatment technologies and develop new technologies; and (3) develop best management practices to help both rural and urban communities control nutrients in their watersheds.
HABs are a growing concern in the United States. Impacts from HABs include losses in income from recreation and tourism, animal and human illness from exposure to contaminated water or seafood, and expenses related to monitoring, treatment, and control of HABs (U.S. EPA, 2015). There is established scientific consensus that while nutrients are necessary for healthy ecosystems, there is a relationship between excess nutrient loading and HABs (Heisler, J. et. al., 2008). EPA seeks research on nutrient treatment technologies, best management practices, and agricultural conservation practice systems to reduce excess nutrient loadings and thereby prevent and control HABs.
