Gulf Research Program Annual Reports

The Gulf Research Program (GRP) is an independent, science-based program founded in 2013. Through grants, fellowships, and other activities, the program seeks to enhance offshore energy system safety and protect human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico and other regions along the U.S. outer continental shelf. Each year the GRP produces an annual report to summarize how funds were used. These reports review accomplishments, highlight activities, and, over time, will assess metrics to determine how the program is progressing in accomplishing its goals.
