Each year Illinois NREC solicits proposals that address nutrient efficiency, improved crop production, and water quality. Each proposal is evaluated by a team of outside peer reviewers and is carefully considered by the Research Committee. The Council ranks projects on their merit and availability of funds and rewards accordingly.

Current grant partners include: University of Illinois, Southern Illinois University, Illinois State University, The Wetlands Institute, Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association, and two County Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
