Research Grants Program

Back to Pest Management Grants

Research grants develop practices that contribute to an integrated pest management (IPM) system to reduce the use of pesticides of high regulatory concern and/or considered high-risk and their unanticipated impacts on public health and the environment. These IPM systems and practices may be promoted through DPRís Alliance Grants Program, which emphasizes outreach and implementation. Project proposals are reviewed by the departmentís staff and by the Pest Management Advisory Committee.
