Annual base grants (104B) are awarded to each of the 54 state Institutes or Centers to help support applied and peer-reviewed research, education, and outreach activities on local or regional water resource issues.  The Indiana Water Resources Research Center uses the majority of 104b funding to support a competitive, peer-reviewed small grants program available to Indiana researchers focusing on basic and applied research to solve water problems unique to Indiana.
