Pest Management Grants
2015/2016 solicitation available in September 2014.
The Department of Pesticide Regulation’s (DPR’s) Pest Management Research Grants Program was established to prevent unanticipated impacts of pesticide use on public health and the environment by funding development of integrated pest management (IPM) systems. Voluntary adoption of IPM reduces potential impacts without the need for regulation by reducing use of high-risk pesticides. A goal of this grant program is to develop and refine reduced-risk pest management strategies that can be incorporated into a complete, effective IPM program. Once the performance of such IPM programs has been established, interested organizations may wish to apply for a DPR Pest Management Alliance Grant, which can be used to demonstrate and promote adoption of the IPM programs.
2014/2015 solicitation available in January 2014.
DPR promotes adoption and implementation of effective IPM systems that reduce risks from pesticide use to human health and the environment through collaboration (alliances) among commodity group representatives, growers, pest control advisors and businesses, university researchers, pesticide industry representatives, conservation agencies, and sustainability certification programs.
