Superfund Research Program

The Superfund Research Program (SRP), as authorized by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, conducts scientific research to address a wide array of complex scientific problems related to hazardous substances. Solutions for the resulting environmental health problems require the expertise of multiple scientific and engineering disciplines. Grant recipients funded by SRP are expected to deliver fundamentally sound science to inform improvements in human health, while providing data and other information to assist the risk assessment and remediation management of Superfund and other hazardous waste sites.

Previously Funded Grant Programs

  • Exploratory / Developmental Research Grants (R21) - This funding mechanism encourages new exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of projects. The SRP does not currently fund any research under this mechanism, and there are no active or planned solicitations.
  • Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) (R41/42) - In addition to the SBIR mechanism, STTR grants facilitated technology transfer through cooperative research and development between small businesses and research institutions. The SRP does not currently fund any research under this mechanism, and there are no active or planned solicitations.
