Funding Sources

Hello all,

I am a new member and wanted to see where people get funding. I work for a non-profit that just opened up an aquatic macroinvertebrate lab. If not from consulting work, where do others find funding?

  • Are you in the U.S.? Many states (and presumably elsewhere) are doing water quality assessments and department of transportation surveys and may contract labs for identifications. It would be worth checking out.  

    • Hi Gail,

      Yes, I am in the US. My project is receiving funding from water quality assessments for this initial phase; however, I am brainstorming other areas that may provide funding for other internal research ideas that may not necessarily have funding (yet). I am in the process of looking into grants that may cover this.
