Superfund Research Program

The cornerstone of the SRP is the university-based, multiproject center grant program. Since 1987, SRP has funded research at 35 universities across the United States, and currently funds 249 research and engagement projects at 23 universities with 142 collaborations at 120 institutions. This section of the SRP web site provides easy navigation to enable you to learn about research and engagement at specific universities.

As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the SRP was able to fund additional Multiproject Centers. You can read about these centers here.
