SOIL Fund

Vision

The vision of the SOIL Fund is to expand the science of erosion and sediment control and to improve the lives of those impacted by erosion and sedimentation.

Mission

The SOIL Fund provides technical assistance for programs and projects that address soil erosion and sedimentation through applied technology, education, and research.

How We Accomplish Our Mission

The work of the SOIL Fund is accomplished through our regions, chapters, affiliate organizations, and individual members. Our potential to provide technical assistance depends on the soundness and practicality of a proposal, availability of funds, and the willingness and qualifications of IECA members to volunteer for a specific project.

Goals

  • To support research that advances our knowledge of the impacts of erosion and the techniques to control it.
  • To support erosion control education and applied technology.
  • To support projects that improve the lives of those impacted by erosion and sediment.
