The ACI Foundation’s Concrete Research Council (CRC) seeks to advance the concrete industry through the funding of concrete research projects that further the knowledge and sustainability of concrete materials, construction, and structures. The CRC administers the Request for Proposals (RFP), the research proposal review, and the approval process. The ACI Foundation distributes the grants.
