Research Grants Program

The application period is now closed.

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 systems reduces potential impacts without the need for regulation by reducing the use of high-risk pesticides. Once the performance of such IPM systems 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 systems.

Alliance Grants Program

The application period is closed and will reopen in early January, 2020.

DPR promotes the adoption and implementation of effective IPM systems and practices that reduce risks from pesticide use to human health and the environment in agricultural and non-agricultural settings. Projects funded by the Alliance Grant Program support those goals through collaboration (alliances) among commodity group representatives, growers, pest control advisors and businesses, university researchers, pesticide industry representatives, conservation agencies, non-governmental organizations, sustainability certification programs, and other groups.
