The lottery also helps sponsor many U projects through the Environmental & Natural Resources Trust Fund. FY20 U projects supported by lottery dollars include tackling of invasive aquatic species ($4,000,000), forest and bioeconomy research ($2,200,000), improving drinking water ($345,000), and transforming plastic waste into valued resources ($225,000). You can see the entire list of all 31 projects funded in 2020 here.
