Funding the Research
Drs. Pearce and Blackburn-Lynch are very pleased to have had several years of support from the Appalachian College Association (ACA) who offers grants for faculty/student research at member colleges such as Berea. The funded research may have been of particular interest to the ACA since the counties that surround the proposed incinerator site and which would be the most affected by the dispersion of toxic particulates from the incinerator are almost exclusively low-income, rural Appalachian counties. In addition, Berea College has been most generous with funding and facillities.
