HEI webinar: Informing potential applicants to RFA on non-tailpipe particle emissions


HEI will host a webinar on October 19, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:00 am EDT to learn about how to apply to Request for Applications (RFA) 21-1, Quantifying Real-World Impacts of Non-Tailpipe Particulate Matter Emissions. This webinar for applicants will describe the HEI application process, summarize the goals of this RFA, and provide an opportunity for potential applicants to ask questions about the application process and requirements. Specific research ideas from applicants will not be discussed. Registration is open here.

RFA 21-1 solicits applications to develop, evaluate, and apply real-world exposure indicators of non-tailpipe PM emissions from motor vehicles (e.g., from tire, brake, wheel weights, and road wear and resuspension of dust from the road surface) and to assess the impacts of such emissions on air quality, human exposure, and human health. The deadline for Preliminary Applications is January 19, 2022.
