Now accepting applications for new environmental justice research


HEI is dedicated to supporting research and other projects focused on the needs of communities disproportionately affected by environmental pollution. We are pleased to inform you of a new funding opportunity RFA 23-2: Assessing Changes in Exposures and Health Outcomes in Historically Marginalized and Environmentally Overburdened Communities from Air Quality Actions, Programs, or Other Interventions.

HEI is seeking to fund studies that evaluate actions, programs, or other interventions at the national, regional, tribal, state, or local level that have affected or have the potential to affect ambient or indoor air quality, exposure, health outcomes, or all of the above in historically marginalized and environmentally overburdened urban or rural communities in the United States. This RFA is modeled after HEI’s long history of funding accountability research to assess the effects of air quality actions on health outcomes and was developed by the HEI Environmental Justice Oversight Panel with input from the HEI Environmental Justice Advisory Council.

Interested in applying? Join our webinar on August 14, 2023 from 2-3pm (EDT). We will help guide you through the application process and answer your questions. Participation in the webinar is not a requirement to apply to the RFA. A summary of the webinar will be made available on our website.

Please note, the deadline for Preliminary Applications is September 29, 2023.
