The Texas AQRP is administered by the University of Texas at Austin, and is funded by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), through the Texas Emission Reduction Program (TERP). TERP funds emission reduction projects in communities throughout Texas. To help insure that these emission reductions are as effective as possible in improving air quality, a fraction of the TERP funding is used to improve our scientific understanding of how emissions impact air quality in Texas.
The specific goal of the State of Texas Air Quality Research Program (AQRP) is to support scientific research related to Texas air quality, in the areas of emissions inventory development, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology and air quality modeling. Research topics are identified and prioritized by an Independent Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC). Projects to be funded by the AQRP are selected from the list of ITAC recommended projects by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and an Advisory Council.
This web site provides links to the strategic research plan of the AQRP, lists of the current members of the ITAC and Council, and instructions for potential applicants for research project funding.
